Gorgeous Blue


I should know the name of this flower but I can't think of it now. If anyone reading this can tell me, please do.

I thought these were Hydrangea. . . can the blue one be a different type of Hydranga? These also come in purple and pink and blue.

I'd say it's what we call in France "Hortensia";seems to me that the english name is "hydrangea", but i'm not sure..;

They all look hydrangeas to me. The color of a hydrangea is determined by the acid in the soil. I see more blue ones than any other but I just love all the different colors.

Yes, I know it as hydrangea ~ but I'm no eXpert! Beautiful periwinkle color.

Looks like hydrangea to me. Maybe just a different species. I have 3 plants in my yard, two like alike and one is a little different its just a different type, but I'm not sure what it is.

Yes, they are hydrangeas. My sister has one like your blue one there.

If you got a pink hydrangea and want it to become blue, you have to bury pieces of slate under the plant.A gardener in Brittany told that to me

Hydrangea colors react to the acidity of the soil. So you can have a lot of different ones.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
