Okay, I think I'm caught up with my 365...phew...it's hard to keep track of the days sometimes!

Anyway, I was Trader Joe's this morning and my heart fluttered when I saw these lovely blue hydrangeas. They grow in our garden in summer, but of course it's going to be quite a few months before I see them growing outside my window....so for now, TJ's will have to fill the void with these imported lovelies! :-)

    This is such a perfect image, Claire! Love the soft focus and soft color. Just enough texture to give it "light dusting" of vintage. Perfect framing and use of negative space. Faved.

    Isn't Trader Joe's great? I need to get down there and check out their latest flowers.

    This is just so, so lovely. I don't know what exactly it is about Hydrangea that captures us all, but I love this flower! Your image is breathtaking and so well done!
