Echo calls from the mountain,

Narcissus only sees himself,

a doomed reflection

In this post I am also joining in with Cee’s Flower of the Day, Macro Monday, DSC_1006

Today’s Flowers

and

Cathy’s  wonderful ‘In a Vase on Monday ‘ where she invites us to find things in our gardens to pop in a vase each week. The great thing about this meme is that Cathy also adds a few props and each ‘Vase’ tells a story.

The mirror in the photo above is an appropriate prop for a ‘Vase’ referencing a myth about unrequited love. It was given to me many years ago by a boyfriend. Before I opened the present he told me that when I opened the wrapping I would see the most beautiful thing in the world – and of course, as it was a mirror, I saw myself!

Sadly the relationship ended before I wanted it too, but it is always nice to remember the good things and I still love that little mirror.

  2. I think that’s a lovely way to display and photograph a flower with a mirror to reflect it. Very pretty!

  3. The poem is so insightful, I have known people with a narcissistic personality, and the exquisite little mirrored house where the narcissus can examine her beauty is such a potent illustration, it puts my imagination into a spin. I imagine that narcissus is a fragrant one, too, Sandra

    • Thanks so much for your comment Hannah. I too have known narcissistic personalities, they can be a challenge to spend time with. It thrills me to know that it set your imagination whirring!
      As you guessed the flower has a marvellous scent, just that one bloom has given my bedroom a lovely soft fragrance. I must get some more for the garden.

  9. A brilliant combination and a bittersweet story. We all have those objects from a long ago love and by this time the memories are usually pleasant.
