What a Difference a Day Can Make....

Yesterday I took my friends pups out for a little stroll and to get the mail. It was a beautiful day and the last of the snow was melting away. On these types of days even the smallest of task is enjoyable. I saw this beautiful dried Hydrangea blossom in her front yard. Of course I had to whip out my phone and take some pictures. This is the result from yesterday. And...

This is the result from today. It is damp and cloudy. I woke up to rain. I love how the moisture has turned the dried blossoms a rusty color. These bushes and their flowers are some of my favorites. I grew up with Hydrangea's and my fascination with them continues. Every one is different and everyone is beautiful in their own way. Young or old. Bright or faded...

It's like the rain made them come to life again! These were my favorite along with spider lillies when I was growing up.(Is that how one spells lillies? Looks weird).

What kind of a phone do you have? i am just amazed at the quality of photos you are taking!

Hey Janet I have the new apple iPhone. However I have downloaded a couple of camera apps. These are great! I have probably 5 to 6 different cameras on my phone. I like the old time cameras and these have that feel. I hope that helped to answer your question.

Elizabeth, I'd have taken a photo too! The Hydrangia is such a gorgeous flower, and your lovely captures have done it true justice! Enjoy the warm weather. We've just finished with an ice storm!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Hi Elizabeth, I can't believe these are from your cell phone. Then I read that you have the Apple I phone, but still these are so spectacular. Only you could create them. Apple should hire you!!!!!
