I was given some hydrangeas today and I noticed for the first time how curious the upper parts of the stems are. They remind me of the translucent limbs of efts and newts; of corpse flowers; and of what I imagine the circulatory systems of people who died of a hypothermia/exsanguination twofer appear.

It's a chilly beauty.

Anyhoo, I'm going to dry them and see how much of that chilly beauty they retain. I do love looking at them.
