The butterfly counts not months, but moments, and has time enough. - Rabindranath Tagore

Beautiful colours. I love Hydrangeas!
Lovely and soothing! Flowers are such fun to photograph, aren't they?
Yes you are swimming in petal, very pretty ones too. Thanks for stopping by today. :)
@Gardening Escapades Thank you. I love the hydrangeas as well. I wish I really could go swimming in those petals.
@Indrani Thank you, Indrani. Everything is turning out very well this year.
@Desperate Gardener What a lovely compliment...thank you. I am enjoying documenting the flowers in my garden.
@Island Threads What is it about hydrangeas that just draws us in to their extraordinary beauty? Sometimes I can't get enough of them.
@The Sproutling Thanks...they were good posers. :)
@DD Thanks...they came out well.
@Meg They are...and now I have some photos for my desktop background. :)
@perennialgardener The flowers agreed to pose for me. :)
These are gorgeous. I cold look at each one for hours.
Beautiful hydrangeas and echinacea!Sky (who has moved blogs from Asea Aranion)
Seeing hydrangeas reminds me of growing up in the South and my family. They always brings a smile to my face. Thanks for sharing.
and drowning in Summer blues - my fave are these hydrangeas
Lovely photos! How do you have both pink and blue hydrangea in your garden? We rarely see pink since we have such acidic soil! If we want pink we have to put them in pots and add lots of lime!
@HolleyGarden Thank you! I feel the same. I guess we don't usually get that close.
@skyfiery Thank you, Sky. I will check out your new location.
@GirlSprout Me too! They light up my day.
@PatioPatch I am so glad you enjoyed the photos. Thanks for visiting.
@Karin / Southern Meadows If I want blue, I add a bit of sulphur to the soil. If I want pink, I add a bit of lime to the soil. If I don't do anything, I usually get a purple or lavender.
Your photographs are staggeringly beautiful! I want to sit in your garden and just enjoy the beauty.
How gorgeous these photos are...flower are so inspiring, I'm loving seeing them tended with such care here in France.
@Cathy and Steve Thank you. I am discovering even more beauty by getting up close.
what a wonderful place to be swimming...such gorgeous colors...love the blue hydrangea..actually was able to get one to turn blue finally this year....
@Donna I wish I really were swimming in those petals...seems like such a special place to be. I usually try to get them to turn blue, but this year I have been experimenting to get other colors. Some of those lavenders and purples are amazing.
@Mrs Bok - The Bok Flock Thanks, Mrs. Bok. The French do love their flowers and gardens, don't they? ...so inspiring...
Oh my God, look at those petals... stunning photos!
@Asha Ram I wish I were a bee, so I could truly 'swim' in them.
