Gather Ye Rosebuds…

Last week, I decided to do some photos with my white rocking chair and the bouquet I caught at my good friends wedding.  Besides, it was a beautiful spring day! 

Normally, I like to not worry about setting up a picture…but the way I wanted these photos to turn out, I had to.  Not that I’m complaining, because I love how they turned out!

While I was editing, I wasn’t quite sure what to name them.  Normally, the name comes right to me.  As I studied this photo, below, what came to my mind was the poem “Gather Ye Rosebuds” by Robert Herrick.  It was Perfect!

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying…"
~ Robert Herrick

Look out for more photos from the Gather Ye Rosebuds Collection!
