114Days #252 Native Ocean Spray
In the same meadow I have been sharing photos from, I saw an Ocean Spray that was past its beautiful white lace stage and was shades of cream to light tan. The low sun turned them blossom head to gold.
Another bush of Ocean Spray lived in a slightly sunnier location a few feet away. It had turned from light tan to light brown. It will soon dry completely and the petals will fall off. The leaves begin to turn, they will fall and blanket the ground as winter comes to the mountain.
For those who are not familiar with this bush it grows five to eight feet tall. It has very pretty scalloped leaves and the branches are small and delicate and bend with the weight of the flowers. The beginning of sunset made everything seem magical. The mountain is a place to find peace, soak up nature and nourish the soul.
