You know Autumn is closing in when you see lovely flower seed heads like this.

I came across this lovely seedhead when I was out walking my dog with my husband almost two weeks ago on our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend here in Toronto.

We were at a local park that we often go to for long hikes with our Labrador Retriever. It was late in the afternoon and the sun was bright and low in the sky. I saw the seed head with the sun shining behind it and knew I had to take a photo. I hope that you appreciate it’s simple beauty as much as I do.

This is the time of year when I begin to long for summer. I guess I have the winter blahs (having a cold to go with it doesn’t help!).

I can’t complain too much about this winter. It’s been rather spring like for the most part with only a few extremely cold days so far this year. For the most part we’ve had above average temperatures here in Toronto with rain rather than snow.

With some luck this weather will keep up and we’ll ease into spring and it won’t be all that long before I start seeing beautiful flowers like this Climbing Westerland rose growing in my garden again.

Do you have the winter blahs too?

This is a Macro (close up) photo of a pink Hydrangea in bloom.

I took this photo earlier this year at the beginning of August when my Hydrangea was blooming happily. The plant is still blooming but it’s flowers are fading and believe it or not they’ve turned a pale green! Isn’t that odd?

Perhaps if it warms up over the next two weeks as the weather people have said I’ll still have some new blooms to end the year with!

Do you grow Hydrangea? If so, what kind?

Yes you are seeing double. I planted my Daffodils close together and when they bloom the flowers are all in clusters of two or three or more. It’s lovely.  The petals are so thin you can almost see through them. Beautiful and delicate.
