Photo Wednesday 8: hydrangeas at home

This is our front yard.  “Yard” is a euphemism: this gorgeous array of flowers (it’s 3 bushes) takes up about half of the space.  I adore hydrangeas and always have, mostly for their color.  They were the main flower in our wedding decor (with some yellow roses) which is part of my sentimental attachment.  But I have only realized lately that part of the reason I love these flowers so much is that they are the exact same color as the sky at its most saturated, outrageous blue.

    Gorgeous! I’m stubbornly trying to grow hydrangeas again…not much luck yet. I appreciate having your beautiful images!

    Beautiful — they hit me like a much-needed sigh.

    I love how hydrangeas just last and last and last. They’re fresh and bright at the beginning, their colors mellow, and even when dried they have a lot of beauty. I love that kind of staying power.

    Gorgeous. I just bought a bouquet of hydraganas (white and blue) to put next to our bed. Love them! Happy 4th.
