LikeLike Reply Beautiful photo and poem. Hydrangeas are flowers with fond memories. My grandmother grew these plants right off her front porch. I would pick one and pretend I was the bride. Grandma would catch me and yell at me for picking for flowers. What other plant has a whole bouquet for one stem? I don’t believe I did it often as I loved my grandma and didn’t like disappointing her. Even so I loved those flowers! 🙂 LikeLike Reply I love how they bloom for such a long time, and the color slowly changes every day. These have turned such a wonderful color. I’m glad you have such great memories of hydrangeas. I like to keep the blooms on the bush, too, but my children like to pick them. 😉 LikeLike Reply Oh, yes! The color changes! We live in an apartment so no great gardening happening here. 😦 So it is nice to live through your eyes! I love your blog! LikeLike Reply Thanks! That an awfully nice thing to say! LikeLike Reply Lovely 🙂 You leave us feeling sorry for the poor forgotten leaf, un kissed by autumns spotlight 🙂 LikeLike Reply 🙂 I’m so happy my poem conveyed that. LikeLike Reply Love the contrast in the haiku. Really beautifully written. 🙂 LikeLike Reply While mowing this afternoon – the wind had left a whole (though small) branch of the willow tree. Hard to not notice that! The butterfly bushes still have some blooms, but it is getting down to the 40’s some nights here. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Most of our trees are still green here. 🙂 I’m glad my poem made you think about your own home. 🙂 LikeLike Reply so pretty – I do see the poor little leaf – met his mortality a little sooner than the others…. 🙂 LikeLike Reply One doesn’t always notice the little leaf when the beautiful blooms take the attention and hold it. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Beautiful haiku and flowers, too!
