Friday Flowers

Over the last few years I have fallen in love more and more with Hydrangeas, apart from all the wonderful colours they come in they are probably the only flower that you can photograph outside when it's breezy. Let's just say they are my favourite flower at the moment!!
These are called Hydrangea Macrophllya Glowing Alps.... bit like a pedigree name for a dog, a terrible mouthful and not what you call it day to day. In my mind I call them Vintage Hydrangeas, their soft colours in lovely combinations remind me of faded textiles.
Plus I'm told they are the best variety for drying, I'm putting that theory to the test!

Hope you all have a marvelous weekend.

What delicious colours! They are inspiring. I love the way flowers fade (not only hydrangeas).
