I know – another made-up word, and it’s all Becky’s fault down to Becky’s inspiring January Light squares challenge. Anyway, I am justifying this particular piece of word smithery on the grounds that these hydrangea flowers were indeed a product of summer sunlight, and so what we see here on a frosty January morning is a manifestation of residual light as it gently decays. This is my ‘story’ anyway.

Fabulous photo, Tish. I love it. That’s a great made-up word too. Throws up all kinds of imagery and possibilities.
Thanks, Izzy. I’m thinking it has possibilities too – Celtic connotations perhaps.
Just beautiful 🌿
Great photo….Look at all the color.
Oh Tish, the capture is beautiful! Love the delicate petals.
Thank you, Aggie 🙂
Gosh, we’re all getting a bit gung-ho aren’t we? My offering today is a little dodgy 🤔 I love these skeleton petals though my poor hydrangea, which usually keeps her mop-heads until I cut them off in the spring, lost hers in the storms before Christmas! Now she just looks naked and very sad…
I think it’s great – being a bit inventive with words in a non-slangy way. The Anglo-Saxons were brilliant with compound noun-adjectives. Added thought dimensions built in 🙂
This challenge is certainly making us all think!
Yours was definitely not dodgy, and I am loving Tish’s photograph today too – just wait until you see what I have planned tomorrow. My word is ok, but the content is unusual!
I think this could be your best challenge so far. 😁
awwww, you are making me blush 🙂 plus also starting to worry now about Aprils!
You’ve set the bar high!
Hoping at least my April cunning plan will equal this month, not sure I can hope to top it.
Oooh! Decay with light! Lovely 😊😊
Was thinking of you when I posted this 🙂
Yup I am happy to accept all responsibility!! What a fabulous photograph, not sure I have ever seen so many leaf skeletons together
Accepting all responsibility: good girl!
Always happy to own up . . . .well apart from when anyone asks who ate the last ‘After Eight’!!
Ooh. Now that sounds like me.
I also got told off as a child for leaving the empty packets in the box!!
Now that is naughty 🙂
What an intriguing photo!
Exquisitely beautiful. Tish! You could be forgiven much word skullduggery for images such as this 🙂 🙂
Thank you for your kind indulgence ma’am 🙂 🙂
The perfect phrase for these beauties and just the sort of thing I love to photograph, Tish.
Thank you, Janet. Beauty in small things 🙂
a nice painting
the serrated leaves remind me of butterfly wings; Finally I like to see several butterflies posed there, warming in the soft winter sun
That’s a lovely image, Yoshimi. Merci.
A wing resupply station for fairies! 🙂
Oh like it!
These are wonderful, Tish!!
Thank you, Hannah.
You are most welcome. 🙂
Love the image, and your word-smithing.
Thank you, Su.
These skeletons are enchanting! as is your wordsmithing! Love this post – it has made my Sunday!
And your comment has made my morning, Ju-Lyn 🙂 Thank you.
