We've been hovering in the mid 80s this week and it's feeling a bit more like summer than fall. While out gardening this morning I noticed the limelight hydrangeas had put out a few new blossoms. I thought the pink tinge at the tips of the creamy white flowers was so pretty and decided to clip them to enjoy on the mantle.
Of course that led to a bit of playing and fluffing.
Thinking that the mantle was also looking more like summer than fall, I added in a leaf. Yes, it's pink and yes, I realize that's not a traditional fall color
I guess that's the way it goes when the decor in the room doesn't lend itself to the traditional colors of fall.
Once the cooler fall air moves in to stay I'll light the fireplace and the little tea light candles. It may not scream "fall is here", but I think it will still be a cozy place to read as the days grow shorter.
And, of course, that little pink leaf will be a subtle reminder of the changing seasons.
