You Capture - Nature




I love hydrangeas!  To me, they are like big pillows of lusciousness!  If I could, I would just scoop them up and hug them!  I have planted hydrangea bushes in the yard of every house we have had (except one that we were only in for 8 months and not during planting season).  Unfortunately, we have moved so frequently that I have never had the opportunity to see the bushes mature and overflow with these glorious blooms.  I planted these bushes three springs ago and am so excited because each bush has about six - ten blooms each!  Some of the blooms are still little, but some are just exploding with clusters.  I snapped these this morning right after a thunderstorm came through.  When we got these they were white, but you can see that blue is now beginning to peek through in their color.  

I hope that you have a great day and treasure the gifts God has given us that are all around in nature just waiting to be opened and discovered.

Romans 1:20
"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature -  have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made [creation] so that men are without excuse."

Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. They come in gorgeous colors and always look like they belong in an old faded picture. Your pictures are lovely.

Hey Karie Lee. I was just doing a little bit of blog hopping and I came across yours. Just today, I did my own post about my favorite flower-the hydrangea. I love them just as much as you do! They're just so beautiful. Hope you come by to see me some time.
