The glory of the hydrangea

They are summer's glory

Intense clusters of pearl-petals and colour

Always perfectly arranged by nature's florist

With bravado...

...flair and magnificence...

The simple hydrangea is anything but!

  1. I used to turn my nose up at hydrangeas. I used to think of them as flowers your grandmother would love. Now I can't get enough of them. Maybe it's because I'm entering the granny zone but I love them in full bloom and when they're half dead. The colours are so subtle and beautiful. Nice post Fran x

    1. Thank you Marg and I couldn't agree more - though I doubt you're entering the Granny zone! I still have hydrangeas from December in various bottles around the house - they dry out beautifully and the colours are gentle and peaceful! F xx

  2. I love hydrangeas! Your photos - as always - are works of art! Happy weekend. Hugs, Jackie

    1. Thank you Jackie and a happy weekend to you both from Sydney. F x

  3. How absolutely gorgeous! I lived in Washington State for many years and hydrangeas grew big and gorgeous there. :-) I've really missed them since moving to Oz, so your post made me very happy indeed. :-)


I love reading your comments - so please feel free to add something. Thank you! F x
