Floral Friday – FF#75 – Blue Hydrangea


My God, how the weeks are flying by, before you know it another week has passed by. I don’t know about you but I am finding that the weeks are flying by now I am a lot older. 😀 😀

The photograph below was photographed at Great Comp Gardens near Sevenoaks in Kent… and guess what?

It’s a hydrangea… and a blue one at that. When I see blue hydrangeas, I just can’t help but photograph them. I just love how long they bloom and how pretty the little flowers are not just in full bloom but in bud form as well.

As we are nearing the end of October, many of the floral gardens will be closed for winter. National Trust places are open for winter walks etc.. but the gardens will not be full of vibrant spring and summer flowers.
