Weekly Photography Challenge: Signs

There are signs all over that summer is finished for another year.

One of these signs is the changing colour of my hydrangea.  When the petals turn pink, I know the end of summer is near.  Like the leaves on the trees, they become more saturated as the weather cools.

This is my submission for this week’s photography challenge:  Signs.

Petals turned Pink

Not only the leaves change colours in early fall.

Each time I walk out the front door, I am greeted by pretty pink hydrangea. The cooler weather has turned their pale petals to a soft pink.

My mother cuts these and keeps them throughout the winter. I have planted some of my own so that I might do the same.

Although I do not welcome the drop in temperatures, there is beauty to be found in the changing of seasons.
