Thank you to the hosts of FLORAL FRIDAY FOTOS and TODAY'S FLOWERS on Sunday
The hydrangea blossoms are fading ....
But still lovely ...
Still the same flower ....
Just a different kind of beauty.
A reminder to appreciate ...
The cycle of life and the glory of every stage.

Beautiful shots of these lovely flowers Sallie!
The first shot has a dark romantic look to it that I like. :)
I love hydrangea and had a lovely bush when we moved here that didn't survive. Another one is trying to pop up in my backyard but the deer love these so I only get to see the blooms underneath that they miss. I think we're going to put up a little fencing around those flower beds this year.

I love the many faces of hydrangeas depending on the season.

Lovely colors. Especially as I'm looking at snow here.

Gorgeous photos. Hydrangeas are so photogenic! I've never seen a red one--did you tint it?!!

Glad you like what I do. Nice to see your work too. :)

Budding, blooming, withering and so on. I think each phase of a flower life has different beauty. The fading flowers on the first photo are subtle and elegant!!

Beautiful post, love to see those gorgeous blooms.
Hydrangea is one of my favorites, but so far I've no success growing them in my garden.
Hope you're having a great weekend, Sallie.

They are lovely and the colors are pretty! Beautiful images, Sallie!

They are pretty in all their forms. Fun photos.

Your hydrangeas are very pretty. The ones that are green tinged with pink on the edges are awesome. My pathetic little bush barely produced any blooms this year. I'm hoping it was because it was in its first year.

Spendid flowers, I like all of them. In west of France (Bretagne) they are often blue. I like a lot the ones which change their colours from Spring to Fall. I had some of them in my house in Alsace but can't plant them here : too much sun and dryness.

Lovely flowers. Beautiful colors.

Lovely to see in October! Here, it's 8C, cold and wet-I had the heating on all night....

Still beautiful Sallie, I love hydrangeas. I love to dry them too.
October 13, 2012 at 10:09 AM
Me too love hydangeas. Lovely photos.

Nice pictures of these flowers - my mother used to grow them.
Really like the orange sunrise - worth rushing outside for.

Hmmm, I think that I'm going to have to rethink my thoughts about fading hydrangeas.
I like the way you think.
October 13, 2012 at 09:06 PM
i love your hydrangeas, especially the green buds with a faint tinge of pink. my mom tried to grow it but was not successful.

I am learning to appreciate hydrangeas! They are a beautiful plant, after all!! I think my favourite photo today is the first one, but I can't give you a reason...

Beautiful photos, Sallie, - love the ones with the vignettes. We have left all our hydrangea's behind in various gardens so it's a real treat to see your lovely pictures.
October 14, 2012 at 02:02 PM
Nice flowerpictures , from your garden ?
October 15, 2012 at 11:28 AM
These are all so lovely Sallie, thanks for sharing them. Have a great week!
October 15, 2012 at 01:45 PM
Great photos of the hydrangeas. They are beautiful flowers and I haven't seen them for ages - they don't like all the heat where I live.
October 15, 2012 at 02:58 PM
We're losing all of our flowers. Time for sleep!

I love hydrangeas. My pinkie winkie actually bloomed a little this year. But yours are much lovelier and better established. :)
October 16, 2012 at 07:43 AM
I got some photos of mine today! They are not as pretty as yours but I was still happy with them. I would have never thought they would be such pretty images, this time of year!
It's so nice, the ideas we gather from others! Many thanks!
October 16, 2012 at 11:13 AM
VERY pretty photos!
