fall flowers


there is a hydrangea tree in our yard outside our kitchen window that produces the most beautiful white flowers every august.  we always look forward to seeing it bloom at the end of the summer each year.  the weather was so wacky this year that our hydrangea tree bloomed a month late.  the flowers bloomed white as they usually do, however, over the past few weeks they have started to turn a pale pink/purple color.

the other day we were out in the yard doing some work and i just had to stop to admire how pretty the flowers looked on the hydrangea tree with the late afternoon sun hitting them.  it's so nice to see such pretty flowers in our yard . . . especially in mid-october!


have a wonderful weekend!
love, laurie

I love hydrangeas. The last picture is very pretty with the sun shining through the flower and lighting it up.
