Beauty Bush

When we lived in Pennsylvania, our yard was home to a Beauty Bush. Now I visit the ones in our neighborhood. When they burst into bloom, there are not enough names for the number of shades of pink that share space on each branch. Unlike last week's post, color is important in this photo. As with my previous photo, the strong verticals and even spacing of a fence are an important part of the composition. But the curve of the branch and the soft shades of pink work together to make this photo seem very feminine. This photo makes me think of the ideal garden many of us dream about, and a perfect spring day.
