If you don’t like hydrangeas look away now…
Hydrangeas are one of Cornwall’s best features in my opinion. They are everywhere. So much so that I’m starting to wonder if you can only successfully integrate into Cornish society if you own one. Flying the flag without flying the flag, or so to speak. Do you remember the heatwave we had in July? Well I ventured out in the searing hot sun with my camera to take photos of these beauties growing in Cornish gardens.
A family member told me she doesn’t see the appeal of hydrangeas (shock horror). Her comment got me thinking about why I like them so much; for me it’s the colours and the fact they are photogenic all year round. For any Brits reading, do they remind you of Pat Butcher?
I’d originally planned to share these photos on a cold, grey day in Winter but I hadn’t managed to get out in my garden this week, so here they are. I think the electric blue is my favourite.
