Hydrangeas evoke such a strong sense of place and time for me, pulling me back to my early childhood where the days seemed endless and everything seemed so much larger than life. A row of hydrangeas ran across the side of our yard, always fully in bloom and dotted with butterflies in my mind. I have long aspired to take a photo that really captured just how dear they are to me and finally, after many tries, I think I have one. On a day when the sun was in full force, these lit from the back diffused the light into an image that my memory deems worthy. Thanks to my sister-in-law for pointing out her beautiful hydrangeas hidden by the side of her house! I hope one day the sight of hydrangeas will recall beautiful memories for you, too.
