I like making pictures of hydrangea. I think it is beautiful all season, from the pastel blossoms in spring, to the deep Wedgwood blue of summer, and the faded purple colors of autumn. The look in late fall is particularly interesting with the plant showing the effects of a fulfilled season and inevitable decline to dormancy. This last phase is perhaps the best episode of all.


  1. That's gorgeous, John. I have no blooms on any of the plants this year, probably because of the pruning I did last year. I miss them but they'll be back.

  2. The flower heads are always worth a close look and they still look good dried. Excellent image, John. The subtle pastel colours are well recorded
