Southern Blue Beauties

I must concur with fellow blogger, Beth, at Design A-Peele, that hydrangeas this year have been especially beautiful.  Hubby has even mentioned it too. And since I would call him somewhat of an expert about hydrangeas since he did his Ph.D research with them, I feel confident to conclude it is a banner year for our southern blue beauties.

Because of the bumper crop, I was compelled to photograph the hydrangeas in our garden (yard).  And man, am I glad I did.  The pictures are stellar (if I do say so myself) and really capture the casual elegance of these blooms.  Enjoy!

P.S. Go get a hydrangea named Twist-n-Shout™.  This plant was jointly introduced by The University of Georgia and the company my husband works for, Plant Introductions, Inc.

  1. Beautiful pictures D! How did you talk that ladybug into posing for you? 🙂 The last of the hydrangea’s you gave me died yesterday but I sure enjoyed having them while they lasted!

    • I’m the Ladybug Whisperer. Didn’t you know that? 🙂 Okay, really here’s my secret: I just kept picking it up and putting it on the flower until I got a couple of good shots. There ya have it.

  2. Those are awesome pictures! I am completely jealous of the
    amazing flowers and plants you all have in the south. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
