Hydrangeas In Winter

Blue Hydrangea in the snow

It snowed again overnight. Flakes falling silently outside my window as I write make the world look enchanted, but I’m more inclined to keep warm with a cup of coffee than to venture out. Instead, I’ve dug out these pictures from the first snowfall we had at the start of winter, before the hydrangea flowers all gave up the ghost and turned brown.

The blue hydrangea is for Becky’s SquareUp as the snow is trying to cover up the mopheads.

Red hydrangea with a sprinkling of snow

The pinky red hydrangea is for Cee’s Flower of the Day.

2020 was the Year of the Hydrangea (though I imagine the hydrangea might have preferred a different one, given a choice). In honour of the accolade, I shared this gallery of Hydrangeas in various colours.  For 2021, the same organisation is celebrating hardy Hibiscus, the garden bean, Hyacinth, Mondarda and sunflower.

  1. Beautiful pics, Susan, I can’t quite make up my mind if hydrangeas are prettier in winter or summer. I find paniculata flowers die best. Happy Sunday 🙂
