Flower of the Day: Lavender-blue Hydrangea

Lavender-blue hydrangea with raindrops

Something cheerier today – one of nature’s many blessings. I’ve quite a collection of pictures of hydrangeas in antique, autumnal colours, but have selected this for its clear, uplifting colour and the freshness of the raindrops.

While I’m calling it lavender-blue, there’s a good hint of pink. It’s wonderful how the colours of hydrangeas change. Could this one be heading towards the bold red of the flowers glimpsed in the background?

  1. My favourite colour of Hydrangeas – the Azores are a haven and heaven of these in hedges 3-4 meters high. Now you made me want to go back there again…
