Mid-November Blooms

Despite the cooler night time temperatures, a few flowers are still adorning my garden.

The pink, blue and lavender blossoms on my Nikko Blue hydrangeas have turned a uniform rosy pink.

That same pink fades to a dull red.

The dull red fades to a sea green.

And finally, the green dries to a dull brown. I leave the dried flowerheads on all winter. They are more attractive than bare branches.

Lovely photos! I do clip many hydrangeas and bring them in for arrangements to enjoy throughout the year, yet leave several outside to enjoy from my windows. I love that your camera has become such a close friend ... your journal and journey is most enjoyable to catch up on. Happy Thanksgiving!
