Hydrangea in vintage hues


This hydrangea named Homigo, was bred in Holland by the Hofstede family.  It changes colour during the growing season, from beautiful blues and violet shades, then greens appear.  Look at it now, a little of everything happening.

Carole this hydrangea is gorgeous, and i love the lighting and how you have processed this. Very interesting little history also. How neat that the colors adjust as its season moves forward. Beautiful shot. Hoping that 2013 brings you much joy
