Today’s Flowers #3

“Where flowers bloom so does hope.”
— Lady Bird Johnson —

Today’s flower is a Hydrangea. I took this at the walking park in Lenoir, NC about three weeks ago.

  9. Love the flower shot and the saying :)

  10. I wish I could grow this kind of hydrangea in my gardens! I love them. They turn blue if the soil is acidic and pink if its alkaline. I think that’s amazing!

  11. Beautiful blue Hydrangea and words of wisdom.

  12. Hydrangeas spiral me back to the late 50s when my Grandmother moved to a terrace over-looking Bondi Beach and stretching the full length of her side walkway were alternating pink and blue Hydrangeas. They are in full bloom in December in Sydney and one spray is sufficient to fill a vase.

  13. I like Hydrangeas (Hortensia). Good shot.

  14. Ola! I did’t know the English name for Hortencia. Thanks for it and for the gift you gave us with your photo.

  19. Very pretty! These always remind of of my baby-sitter’s yard when I was a kid. She had huge bushes that lined the front of her house.

  20. That is a beauty. Now I now my hydrangea! Last time I mixed them up with Phlox!;)
