  • Thanks very much, Katherine! I liked the flower because it’s different from the more typical pastel hydrangeas.

    The light and color here are just gorgeous, Celeste!!!

  • Thank you, Laurie! The color of these hydrangeas really caught my eye, as I’m more used to seeing pastel shades.

    Like a mother speaking to her children…Lovely colors and mood…My mind is overactive with images and stories today…

  • I love your interpretation of this image, Susan, as it really fits. I anthropomorphize my flowers regularly, and I love what happens when others do too. :)
