I discovered this dried, partially skeletonised hydrangea bloom in the garden recently.
Isn't it interesting?
The lacey shadow reminds me of butterfly wings.
I'm always intrigued by plants and flowers at all stages of their lives. I love buds for their potential to become something stunning. Of course then I adore the blooms for their perfection in design and colour and then there's also something about spent blooms that intrigues me. Hard to explain. Do you know what I mean? Or is it just me?
ps don't you love the clear shots? I used an actual camera! A nice (borrowed) Nikon DSLR instead of my dinky iTouch camera. One day I'll get one of my own :)Xx
