    My climbing hydrangeas look like that now and it is the middle of summer here in Tasmania, Australia…no snow to blame here…only the newfound interest and degustatory delight of our local native wallabies :(

  • Michaela says:

    No, no, Wally! Wallabies eat hydrangea? How can such a cute animal be so bad? Do they gnaw the bark, defoliate or simply consume the entire plant? Dratted beasties. So upsetting.

    Such uplifting photos, as always M; but totally in love with the glow of backlit Beech in “A Winter’s Day”… hugs D.

  • Michaela says:

    Thank you, Deb ;) The tardy-to-depart beech leaves really are a gift at this time of year. xox M

    I love eavesdropping on their gentle whispers when passing by in winter woods: )
