At the end of the growing season, which is September or October where I live in New Hampshire, the hydrangea blooms have turned some unusual colors. Depending on the fertilizer and summer weather, the flowers can be bright blue or more of a pinkish green and fade to dark purple or green. It’s what I love about this plant – never a dull moment!
I try to get good photos to use for my work throughout the season and the greens of late summer are as much fun to capture as the bright blues of mid-summer.
Two years ago the blooms on the shrub in my yard were a bright and wonderful shade of blue. I’m glad I captured that shade in photos because the next year (last year) the blooms were smaller and not as lovely, although they are always a delight no matter what the color. Since green flowers are unusual, I’ve sold a lot of stationery in my wedding store with their image.
