Natural Bouquet

I love hydrangea bushes because their bundle-style blossoms are like naturally arranged bouquets. This lacy hydrangea adorns the corner of my front yard. The lacy variety also has tiny clusters among the larger flower petals for even more texture in the presentation. And depending on the soil, the color will go from pink to lavender, or sometimes a mixture as on this bush. The gentle color fades make me want to watercolor its portrait.

  1. Oh I love Hydrangeas too. I am just not good with flowers. 😦

    • That’s the other reason I love this bush. I only have to watch and clip the soft branches back once a year after the leaves die but before the buds form. There is usually at least a month where it’s in that condition, so easy to have time to notice and get it done. Then it takes care of itself unless in a very dry summer I might water the bush two or three times. They grow wild in my environment, so couldn’t be easier to raise and enjoy.
      I’m glad you liked the pictures. 🙂
