Nov. Photo-a-Day challenge: Fading Flowers

City Sonnet sponsors a monthly photo challenge with a different topic each day. The topic for Nov. 2 is fading flowers.

By now, there are scarcely flowers at all – a freakish snowstorm on Oct. 31 dumped over 3 inches on our part of the Midwest – it’s all gone now, but so are the flowers! Fortunately, I have photos of fading hydrangeas which I took earlier in October.

Hydrangeas look nearly the same when they fade and die as they did when they were in bloom – the flowerets remain, but they dry up and turn green, then brown – there is a clump of each in this photo.
