Love these photos also, beautiful colors!
I love hydrangeas and think of Madonna when around them. Remember her, “I loathe hydrangeas….” comment when a fan gave her a boquet? Hydrangeas are too kind to loathe her in return~
I absolutely love your response “Hydrangeas are too kind to loathe her in return~” I’m with you on that! XOXO
🙂 & hugs~
Ahhh…nothing makes me smile like flowers.
A flower person!! Like me! 🙂
Aren’t hydrangeas so beautiful? They have been still life favourites forever I think.
I think it is because they are 100 or so flowers in one bloom. The lace caps are special favorites. I guess we disagree with Madonna…….
Yes, the lace caps are special. We must agree to disagree with Madonna!
That is pretty easy for us to do isn’t it!!! Cheers to you my friend & hope you cold is in the past~
Mine are just starting to bloom. It was so cold for so long that everything blooms later this year.
The Holler is the only place where I have been unable to grow them. Our summers are too hot. I tried to shield them from the sun, but it was a losing battle. I miss them and envy the riotous blooms and colors I have seen abroad~
Fabulous colours, Cindy. 🙂
I like this mixed color especially. They are lovely aren’t they! Thank you ma deah~
They are gorgeous.
I agree with you and remember your beautiful post of them recently too!
I absolutely LOVE Hydrangeas! Beautiful!
HA! You know the infamous quote. Has she considered what hydrangeas must think of her for this rude comment???? They are too elegant to harbor such thoughts, so I was incensed on their behalf! LOL ~
I never tire seeing flowers, whether fresh cut or in the garden!
They were designed with such perfect elegance~
I couldn’t agree with you more…!!!
My mother 🙂 have them in her garden in-front of our house, they do remind me of my house……..captured very warm and invited flowers !
What a wonderful memory! I miss growing them but it too hot out here. They are fun to grow because you can select the hue through fertilization. The best I have seen were in Switzerland and France. Cheers to you and thank you!
Your pictures are vibrant, detailed and gorgeous.
You are nice! Thank you~
Hydrangeas are my favorite of all the flowers, and your photos of them are superb — I especially like the way you put some petals at the bottom of the vase for a little extra touch in the photo! They have such a variety of color, and are like big snowballs of blooms (and you know THESE aren’t color-infused!)!
I added the dropped flower as an afterthought, thinking of the still life paintings of Europe. There is often the hint of decline, with a dropped flower, and it is strangley beautiful. Thank you for noticing this Becky~
Lovely flowers! Great summer viewing 🙂
Do you think we should send some to Madonna?????? Naaaah…….. 🙂
They’re beautiful, Cindy. We have them in our garden too 🙂
I wish I did!! It’s too hot to grow them here. I miss them!
