Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


The Hortensia outside my house is still (sort of) alive..Β  But the weather forecast says we can expect lots of snow tonight (Yay!) so this might be the last flower picture in a while. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post some winter images soon!

  3. It’s still delicious in its elegant delicateness! I have some similar flowers, but none of my pictures have turned out as fine as this one. Nice work, Calee!

    • Thanks sweet Wendy!! I’m actually surprised it’s lasted this long.. but it still looks quite nice I think! Even if the colours have faded.

  5. A very nice capture, Calee. The flower is actually pretty. The brown petals seem soft with the overlayering of white or maybe that is grey. Muted colors are subtle and I find that attractive.
