My hydrangea bush gave me a few last blooms this past week and now they are shivering in the cold.  We had our first snow last night and although it was pretty, I could’ve waited a bit longer to see it.  I’m sure if my hydrangeas could talk they would agree.

Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in
the summer, when they complained about the heat.  ~Author UnknownMM3

I thought this morning glory plant cast some great shadows as it climbs up my drainpipe.

I love the heart shaped leaves and the shadows they create.

The heart has reasons that reason does not understand.” ~ Jacques Benigne Bossuel
