A Rainbow of Colors

Usually, I find blue or white Hydrangeas but recently I have located other colors too. These are some of them. I never knew a flower could be so beautiful in so many different ways.








I couldn't find my white ones. . . I was told that the color they become is depended on the type of soil it is planted in BUT THEN why is this bush multicolored?

I was going to say that the color varies depending on the acidity of the soil, but then I got down to the two bushes right next toe ach other, and after that the different colors on the same bush and...

Those are about the prettiest hydrangeas I've ever seen. I love the different colored ones. I'll ask my husband if he knows.

These colors are marvelous, Paulie. Just great.

PS My parents have gardened all their lives. In recent years they have come to enjoy it and wonder about it.

I just read this on Google...
Take iron nails, copper and zinc or aluminum and place it on 3 sides of the plant near the outside drip line. You will get three different colored blooms on one plant.

The hydrangeas are just beautiful, especially the pink one!

I've been told that you have to add acid to the soil if you want them to be a certain color...too bad I can't remember which color.

We tried to plant them two years ago, and they never came back up.

The hydrangeas are such lovely shades of blue, pink and cream.

By the way, the butterfly you saw at my Monochrome Maniacs post can be seen in colour at

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. . .
