Into the Light

I love these climbing hydrangea flowers, although they’re dead, they’re still delicate and beautiful, they’re even better a little later in the season when they look like lacy butterflies. Unfortunately I don’t have plant of my own but take photos of the one that grows at our local Botanic Gardens just a short walk from […]
