Spring Around Us


Puddles of water from Saturday's cold storms 
remained on the sidewalks when I walked 
to the store Sunday morning. 
Here, one of last summer's hydrangeas had been 
blown into one of those puddles.
Barely more than a wisp of its former self, 
the dried flowers served as both 
a reminder of past beauties and 
the promise of more to come.

I like how you captured the beauty of this spent flower. I just removed dozens of similar blooms from my hydrangeas. This really is one of my favorite photos of late.

Surely this is a site well worth seeing.
