The Last of the Hydrangeas



SIGH!
How beautifully leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.

I love hydrangeas, they are almost as beautiful when they are dead as when they are alive.

Beautiful image Virginia.

They look like pine cones, almost petrified. Sigh indeed.

I love dried hydrangeas! These look so pretty in the golden light, the sum of fall.

Hydrangeas are beautiful even when they have dried and turned brown.

Even though brown and dry, it's still a beautiful flower!
