Gorgeous closeup of your hydrangea, and such a beautiful color.

I wondered if you would agree to being a guest friend and share some of your flower photos with us on the home page? Your name would be added to the list for one of the Sunday's Today's Flowers and we would let you know which date yours would be shown. If you are interested please contact me at:

This looks like one of the pictures in those uplifting e-mails that you get that ask you to send it on to 10 friends. Beautiful.

That's gorgeous. I have a soft spot for mophead hydrangeas, because my grandmother grew them!

Beautiful ;-)
My hydrangea is struggling in the shade of the overgrown lime tree in my yard but I hope it will come back this spring.
Hugs and blessings,
