My first love of the hydrangea was the
"Mophead" variety...those big, rounded blooms were unmistakeable in their appearance,
and caught my attention straight away!
Now, living here in the PNW, I'm starting to notice other varieties.
This is the Lacecap Hydrangea
...more delicate than their bold, Mophead relative.
Yet, still has a stunning statement to make.
A bumblebee's paradise.
A photographer's joy.
I simply couldn't get enough of this beauty this day.
At home, near the coast, their colors blend so nicely.
Blue, lavender, purplish pink...
Lovely, lacy centers.
If only you could capture the tiny buds as they open.
I hope you enjoy these...
I know I got carried away!
Almost Friday my friends...
How did you capture that bee so well?..amazing photography.
I remember falling in love with a lacecap....love at first sight.

Here, the lace-cap is called an Angel's Parasol hydrangea.
It is my favorite of the hydrangeas.
Wishing you a happy weekend!
Yours are absolutely gorgeous .....love the last one especially.
