Outdoor Wednesday ~ Eerie & Beautiful

Puttering in my home, I heard an eerie high-pitched drone growing louder and louder. The noise drew me outside. Filling all of the high branches of the trees were hundreds of squawking black birds. As I rounded the corner of the house they suddenly flew off. All of the clamoring sound was gone... that fast!

Then my eye caught the beautiful jewel-tone colors of the hydrangea bushes. The cooler days turned the fading bloom colors into vivid shades of autumn. I gathered three huge vase-fulls of these giant flowers and plan on enjoying them through the coming winter days.

I'm heading over to for more Outdoor Wednesday... want to come along?

Hydrangeas are so pretty. Now the birds are a bit creepy and reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock and the movie the Birds:) Good thing they did not land on your car because they would be leaving a calling card:)

Love the colours of your hydrangeas. The birds are so strange when they flock and swoop in unison like that, great moment to capture.
