I can never get enough of them, and this is the time of year they
show off their moody blooms!
I love referring to them as "moody blooms" because of their ever changing
colors depending on the soil's composition.
This hydrangea at our house used to be completely blue and now the past couple
of years, it's given me a variety of color from deep blue to lavender and pink!
Below is something I found online that describes the meaning & symbolism
of the hydrangea. The name hydrangea comes from the Greek "hydor," meaning
water, and "angos," meaning jar or vessel. Roughly translating the word to
"water barrel," referring to the hydrangea's need for plenty of water.

THE MEANING & SYMBOLISM OF
I'm glad I was able to take the time to photograph these blooms because with
this heat wave we are having in Seattle, they won't last long.
I shot these images one morning right after I watered them.
Notice the bottom right...one of the blooms is divided down the middle
with lavender on one side and pink on the other.
This blue is still my favorite.
Look at this! As I was shooting I noticed this flower that was white. I'm guessing
it will change to the pink that surrounds it.
Isn't it lovely how different they can all be?
That this stunning flower can go from this,
and finally this!
So, here it is, summer of 2015. I wonder what surprises this moody bloom will have
for me next year?
I hope you enjoyed my photos,
thank you for visiting me here.
