I have always loved hydrangeas. We had them all over the coast in New England when I was growing up, but when we moved to Texas, it was too hot there to grow them. This summer my husband bought me a hydrangea for my little courtyard in back. The flowers had not opened yet, but the tag said it was a blue one. I know that the acidity of the soil determines the color to a great extent, and we have added acid to the soil on a regular basis. When the flowers finally opened, they were a gorgeous shade of…white. For the life of me, I don’t know why I can’t make these flowers turn a color. Any color, at this point! Anyway, for this week’s photo challenge, I leave you with pictures I’ve taken of various hydrangeas in Connecticut. Enjoy.
