Early Green Hydrangea
I seem to have featured this particular display of hydrangeas at so many stages, but I make no apologies, as I loved seeing and documenting the progression. This is really early in the opening of the flowers, with the delicate, pale green colour dominant in the smallest buds, giving way to the whiter, fuller blooms below. There is something beautiful to appreciate in all stages of flowers, as we have all remarked many times, but surely one of the most appreciated is the freshness of new beauty as it appears. Seeing this photograph has taken me back to yet another unencumbered walk, this time at the end of August, presumably still in warm days. I feel the same warmth today… but sitting here in the living room, dressed in a warm sweater, with the wood stove burning brightly behind me. There is deep snow on the ground outside and the temperature of -8°C (17.6°F) feels (apparently) like -14°C (6.8°F). Then I look at this photograph again and I feel warm from a different source, as I did on that day. Oh! The power of the imagination! Flower a Day #509 View all posts on the Home page.
