What a lovely Hydrangea!
The colour is just amazing!
I usually dry them, so I can enjoy them also in winter!
Have a nice weekend!

I've just discovered you via Heart-shaped - what a lovely blog! I really love the hydrangeas - I, too, blog about the joy of small things, and it is lovely to see your everyday treasures, too.

Blue has forever been one of my favourite colours and I did have a hydrangea plant just like your lucky find - but it somehow didn't survive - think it was because I cut it back and you're not supposed to! Also, what you buy isn't always what you end up with - I believe the soil has something to do with the changing colours of this beautiful plant. Lovely pic!

yes, I do like the idea of seeing them in the hedgerows - it must be very beautiful - they are one of my favourite 'flowers' especially when they turn from one shade to the other.. cx

This delicate colour is exquisite. I can't believe they grow in your hedgerows - how lucky you are!

I adore these flowers, they remind me of childhood - our neighbour, an old lady had them growing in abundance in her back garden...but hers were pink.

Yours are beautiful.

Love Julia xxx

I think this must be the most beautiful hydrangea I have ever seen, and to think it grows in the hedgerow in your part of the world. I would spend good money to have this plant! x
