I would have never thought I would find brown dried hy blosooms beautiful. But I did!

Jacob said...

Very artsy shot! And the flower looks quite nice...I would not have thought that was possible.

Re your comment on The Villages: What shadows? I didn't see any shadows! You have a good eye!

I love this shot, hydrangeas are beautiful the year around, they are worth all the water they consume!

Great photo! My hydrangeas still have brown blooms on them too.

Beautiful details of these petals - they are more beautiful dried than when blooming!

Great shot!

I have a big hydrangea here in Spain. There are no flowers now but the leaves are green the whole year. I hope there will be some flowers soon!

see you there! said...

I like hydrangeas dried almost as well as when the blossoms are in full bloom. Lovely shot.
