I love looking at the morning and evening light filter through the spent hydrangea blooms. I almost didn't have any this year. My sweet Pirate went out and deadheaded and pruned one hydrangea to impress me with his gardening finesse while I was out on a bug hunt with an entomologist. I came home just in time to stop him from pruning the other two. He was surprised to hear that I like those dried up ol' things. Perhaps this shot can change his mind. Anything is possible, right?
