In the Bag


Hello, my lovelies. I hope you've had a wonderful week.

I want to start out by saying thank you for all the love you gave me about the passing of my sweet, old dog, Murphy. Your kind words mean the world to me. I can see that a lot of you share the same love of animals that I do.

As for today's post, I'm not feeling particularly talkative. I mostly just wanted to post a few photos that I took the other day. My hydrangeas are starting to fade, so I thought I'd cut a few and put them in this pretty woven bag. When life gives me flowers, I take pictures. 


The light was so nice. It had that warm glow that sunset brings...little bands of gold twinkling through the leaves. It's been rather dry this summer so some of the leaves are starting to fall. It makes me think that autumn is just around the corner. Although it's such a pretty season, I wish summer didn't end so soon.


Well, that's all for today. I hope you're enjoying the last days of summer. Best wishes for a beautiful weekend :)

  2. I love your first picture - it's so romantic! This year we had not very often nice weather, so I also enjoy the last days of summer with the last flowers, warm temperature at the time being!
    Have a nice weekend too,

  9. Tricia,

    I wonder what variety of hydrangea you have. Mine are blue or purple and I have seen pink. But your white ones are lovely!

  10. These are so pretty and so wonderfully photographed. The pale colors of these hydrangeas are so different from what we have around here. They look perfect sitting in that woven basket.

  11. Yes, beautiful flowers to have the ability to soothe. They are quite lovely. Thank you for sharing them. And I'm so sorry about the loss of your most beloved Murphy. We lost our 17 1/2 year old beagle about 2 years ago. He would have 20 tomorrow. We still haven't found a doggy to fill his spot. I hope you have a beautiful, beautiful weekend.

  13. What beautiful images, Tricia! When I see hydrangeas like this, I must admit I'm envious. I've never seen hydrangeas bloom like that in this part of the country. Your photos are exceptional, as always. Wonderful composition.

  21. I am always SO happy to see new posts from you. They are filled with such beauty and I always feel like I want to sit outside and have some lemonade with you! Again, I am sorry for the loss of your sweet doggie. Our furry family members are so special and never forgotten. xoxo

  25. So so lovely. You mention that autumn is on the way - this will be my first "autumn" in Singapore where it is non- existent. It is basically the exact same weather all year round. I am not complaining about sunny warm weather - but I am an autumn girl...boots and scarves.

  26. Such gorgeous photos. I just love hydrangeas, But it is to hot here in the desert for them. So I sit and drool over your lovely photos. I am kind of excited for fall to get here. It will be nice to be able to sit outside in cooler weather once again. HOpe you enjoy your weekend.

    Hugs~

  31. Your pictures are absolutely beautiful.

    I can't wait until our hydrangeas get big enough for me to pick them and enjoy them! We just planted them this year, so it'll be a while.

    Hey...I have a question about picture taking...the other day I showed some pictures of Lydia's room, and the walls don't look pink at all. Is it the time of day that I took the picture or do I need to use a particular setting on my camera? I shot it the pictures in Manual mode....can't remember the other settings. I'd love your help. :)

  32. Love the color variation on these, so soft and gorgeous. Love how you styled this also. Truely beautiful

  33. Sometimes I think that Hydrangeas are even prettier when they start to dry...yours are georgous. They look amazing in the basket. Such lovely, lovely photos.

  37. I always LOVE your beautiful photos Tricia! Your hydrangeas are so lovely. Mine are now blooming too and I am enjoying them so much on the bush before I cut some to make wreaths. I think this flower is why I love August so much.
    Thank you so much for stopping by my place, I love it when you visit.

  38. Tricia -- These are so lovely! You have such a great eye and technical know-how to match. Have you ever thought of selling your photos? The stock photo companies pay for great photos. There are all kinds of categories. You should look into it.

  41. Your photos of your hydrangeas are so pretty! Up north, the trees are already starting to turn color. I love the beauty of autumn, but like you, hate to see the summer end already.

  47. Amazing photos!
    I've been using a Canon that my friend doesn't use anymore. It's a very old one, but has the big lenses. I love it. So I think I'm more than ready to by the T3.

    Have a lovely week.

  49. Such gorgeous photos. I wish I had some productive hydrangeas to bring inside. Beautiful setting with the chippy chair and basket, too.

    I've shared your story of Murphy with so many, it was so sad to read. I hope you are doing ok, I think of you often.

  50. Oh, Tricia, so sorry for your sweet Murphy, it's so difficult to loose a beloved pet, I know it hurts a lot.
    Your photos are always so gorgeous, love the setting with the chair and beautiful basket full of hydrangeas. You are very talented.
    Happy day!

  51. Hi Tricia,

    That's a perfect way to display hydrangeas! Ours did so well this year but they are not quite ready to cut for drying. I fill the house up with them to enjoy the rest of the year.

    Wishing you a peaceful week.

  58. Your pictures are beautiful! I just found your blog. Do you mind if I ask what kind of camera you use? Thanks! Love the blog..

    ReplyDelete
  59. I, too, just found your blog and the timing is interesting... that is not the right word but I really don't think there is an appropriate word. You see, we just spent 5 days away from our dog leaving her in the house with a dog sitter to come in 4 times a day to tend to her needs. Yes, she is still with us but the first day after my return her eyes took an very strange turn. She is 13, almost 14, and has become blind within the past year. She is fine and will be seeing her eye specialist tomorrow but this scared me. What this has taught both my husband and myself is that we will no longer be taking such long trips away from her. I know how you are feeling as that would be me, also, in your shoes. It's so hard but you are right... we will see them again in another place. << hugs to you>>
