Self-Portrait Tuesday 10.18

Picking grapes, mowing on the lowest setting and cutting the remaining hydrangeas today. This is my self-Portrait, de-leafing hydrangeas - the perfect fall day. It is bittersweet but wonderful, as this time of the year always is. The colors, the grapes, the end of hydrangeas and flowers and the promise of winter to come. Each season has it's highlights and fall for me will always be grapes and many vases of hydrangeas to give away. I did press a few hydrangea petals this years, Montana Raven reminded me to do that.

Oh Kim! What a magnificent bounty of hydrangeas! I am so thrilled to just see them spilling forth across your countertops. Wish I had such a stash!! =)

Kim, your self portrait with hydrangeas ... reminds me so much of harvest canning in the kitchen. Great idea for a self-portrait and I'm glad you remembered to press some petals. I've run out of mine (pressed petals) cuz they don't grow here where I live.
