Thursday Challenge; Peaceful

Time for another Thursday Challenge and this week's challenge is;
"PEACEFUL" (Calming, peaceful nature, park, or urban scenes,...)


I don't know why but this place is magical. It is by far the most peaceful place I've seen in the world even though it's an ancient burial place. It's quiet, still, peaceful. You really can come to peace there. I've been here around 4 times now and this place does that to me every time!

Hydrangea frames

My Hydrangea needs pruning but I always do that early Spring so that the birds have a somewhere to hide in winter. Now that the temperature is rising the buds are already appearing and the old flowers need to be cut. Not yet though. Before I do that I made some photos of them.

I love flower frames, there's something about them that's very lovely.
