Hydrangea


Hydrangea - One my favorite Flowers!


I simply love Hydrangeas!
The colors are very brilliant, clear and vibrant. Yet, they can be soft and suttle.
It is amazing how the type of soil can change the color.
The texture is layered from the center point of each flower petal, soft and full.


Hydrangea flowers cut from my garden are inspiration for the card!




Does your dining room table ever become your color area?
Yes, that is the sun shining in the window!

Acidic Soils produce blue flowers.


Alkaline soils produce more pink shades


Pale Green Hydrangea mixed with many different flowers!
Hint for Hydrangeas!
Hydrangea is derived form the Greek 'hydro' meaning water and 'angeon' meaning is vessel. The name refers to the flowers (plant) need for plenty of water!

Enjoy!
