The beginning of Autumn Inspiration

Everyday as I turn into my driveway, I admire my neighbor's hydrangeas.

This time of year the Hydrangeas begin to dry on the trees.

No matter what's on my mind as I approach my driveway, I get lost in the beauty of the Hydrangea.

Such a beautiful flower always captures my imagination.

I think there is enough pink in the Hydrangea to link to Pink Saturday.  Stop by and visit Bev from How Sweet The Sound for Pink inspiration.

When the Hydrangeas begin to dry on the branch, it is the first sign of the beginning of Fall and the Autumn Leaves.

Have a beautiful weekend.

They are beautiful and your photos and embellishments are wonderful, too. It must be great to see a flower that banishes any troubling thoughts.

How I love these flowers. Even in the winter, they offer so much and not even the wind can destroy their beauty. HI KAREN!!! Happy day, Anita

Even in their last stages, still petty.

Happy Pinks, Karen! Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers. These are simply scrumptious and I love how you've captured them. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely weekend.

I would get lost in that beautiful, graceful Hydrangea tree, too! What a lovely color. I know it has to do with the acid in the soil, right? I wish I could find the right formula to change my purple Hydrangeas to a pale pink, like these!

They are pretty dried on the tree, too!

I wish Hydrangea's grew in our part of the country. They're so beautiful fresh or dried. Your pictures are beautiful!!

Hi Karen,

I love the pretty hydrangeas and they are always such a gorgeous flower.
I was at the garden center yesterday and I bought an indoor hydrangea, never knew there was an indoor variety.

Happy weekend

Such a beautiful post! I love hydrangeas too but I've never tried to grow a pee gee tree hydrangea like this one - such a temptation for next year! I especially love your last image with the watercolor 'reflection' at the bottom. Just lovely.
Have a great weekend,

Hi Karen, I was so tickled you dropped by. As always, your posts are so pretty and magical. I love hydrangeas and am lucky to have inherited one bush and planted two more. All are doing well and I am drying some as we speak. Hope you are having a wonderful week. xo Lynn
