Death of a Hydrangea

Death of a Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla letum

There is beauty in nature and all natural things succumb to death as the season changes to Autumn. I wanted to capture this hydrangea’s “dying breaths” as its remaining hours of photosynthesis gradually faded on this December day in 2013. Sunlight gave this plant hope, a final blossoming under subdued hues. Until the sun faded and the mystique of Winter called it on the cold breeze, downward, wilting and decaying into its resting place.
