Special plant: oak leaf hydrangea

We may need balance,
Some control in our life.

Maybe a Fall “tune up,”
Finding our way again.

Change and rotate,
Aligning our “chakras.”

Becoming One
with the Universe.

Nature’s answer to
this dilemma is to

    • You are so right, things are interesting in thing which are not symmetrical or perfect. Just saw this and “winged it,” Marissa. Hope you have had a great weekend so far! πŸ™‚

    • It is funny, Sylvia, before going up to Mom’s I went in for my “good” tires to be moved to front for front wheel drive preparation for snow. And an oil change, had to pay for things they found like a new Ty bar. Not even sure if it is spelled “tie” bar but I called my brother and he said, “It MAY be you need to replace!” Some help he was! πŸ™‚ Oil change would have been around $30 but ended up $349. I paid off my car and I do expect it to need things but after 7 years only have 77,000 miles. Was hoping to make it to 100,000 miles. . . So now you know where my mind really was! πŸ™‚

    • Beth, thank you. I have been super busy and not as attentive since breakfsst. Hope you had a good day! Seasons change and have the special moments of each. Loved your Bat Girl and the other children playing cards. πŸ™‚

    • Maniparna, I like your new gravatar. Very nice. THANK YOU For Your Recent Special And Kind words. I have been more busy today with last full day with my Mom until Thanksgiving (late November). She needs therapy for strengthening, medication nurse and other adjustments. I am only daughter so she counts on my helping. Taje care and I will be visiting soon! πŸ™‚

      • Thank you for kind wishes. The elderly deserve respect and my Mom deserves love.β™‘ I hope your parents and grandparents are still sround, as you are still young and need to have intergenerational relationship with your family. Have an excellent week, Maniparna.

  1. What a wonderful image Robin – you’ve captured a real essence of the Oak Leaf Hydrangea – stunning!

    And your “imagined” or perhaps “inspired” words – very thoughtful πŸ™‚

    Wonderful post πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Pat for the double compliment! I try my hand more often on my posts to capture (as you used the word) the ” essence” of the various items I take pictures of in poetic words. I am glad you knew what this was, since truthfully I had to ask my friend 3 times. I guess I had never heard of hydrangea leaves being so decorative.

      • LoL … I worked in the field of horticulture for 20 years … so yup – I know alot about plants Robin πŸ˜‰

    • Brenda, nature sure makes my rhythm and soul settle into place again. Thanks for using part of my writing thoughts in your comment making me chuckle. I can just imagine your chakras aligning as you walk and hope your body doesn’t get “creaky” as my soon approaching 60 year old body feels, Brenda. πŸ™‚

      • I get less creaking now that I’m in PT. Which reminds me, I didn’t do that today yet. I threw a party for my oldest at a movie theatre. The kids are so grown up now. Breaks my heart even as it makes my heart happy.
