Favorite Flower Photos

Pink Japanese Snowball

I am having a nice quiet day, I don't have to work and I don't have a car right now as hubby has borrowed mine, our son has borrowed his and the circle is complete. I am happy to stay home for the day as I can catch up, and we're having company this weekend - there is a house to get in order before Gregg's Dad and wife arrive on Saturday. I am looking forward to seeing them as they are two people I consider my very dear friends. I also have some phone calls to return, messages on the answering machine to be answered. I have already called my sister - five o'clock my time, eleven o'clock hers. I woke up early and was pretty wide-eyed and bushy tailed. I can't say I feel that way right now as I didn't get to sleep until after midnight and even a cup of strong coffee hasn't helped. Anyhow, before I start my list of things to do, I thought I would share some of my favorite flower photos, taken at various places in our area, not in our garden unfortunately. One day maybe! In the meantime I am taking notes and photos.

These two photos above and below are Lacepcap Hydrangeas.

The next two photos are of Fragrant Snowbells.

  1. All beautiful pictures and flowers Denise! I got 2 Hydrangea this year (Pinky Winky)! I hope they grow well but only time will tell. They are rated Zone 3....Get that house in order!!

  2. Hi Eve, and thanks for those always welcome comments. Well, I can see I have been caught out. Here I am again, though I did spend half an hour tidying things up. Back to the grind!!!!

  3. Lovely photos. Hope your own garden will soon look as good.

  4. Thanks Cheshire Wife, I can live in hope :)))

  5. Its funny I have never bought a hydrangea, but have been eyeing them up this year?


  6. I have been eyeing them up too gill.

    That particular one is my favourite. Thanks for showing the pink snowball, I didn't know about that.

  7. Hi Gill and Linda, I love hydrangeas too but have never bought one. They seem to be in a lot of gardens in our neighborhood, well established ones that have grown very big. They look so pretty. I had never seen the Pink Japanese Snowball either Linda, until I saw them at these gardens we go to.

  8. These are all wonderful, but I really love that pink Japanese Snowball....never seen one! Gorgeous color.

  9. Hi Mary, that was my favorite also. I hadn't seen one before either. It certainly is a beautiful flower.
