The hydrangeas that line the streets, are coming to an end of their season. Some fledging new flowers are daring to start their cycle after the big rush, but overall, it’s a slow descent into brown, dried flower heads. There is, nevertheless, a beauty in the changing colours as this process occurs. the green, then whitish, then lovely blue mature flowers, change to delicate pastel purples and pinks, then start to brown up. Here in a house of youth, young parents, new babe, 3 year old tomorrow, I’m the pink turning hydrangea, and I can handle it, as I’ve had my good shot at the other stages. It’s the time to just be present, forget looking ahead to that brown stage. Just be delicate, pink, purple, serene.
