Do you have a garden with these? Or perhaps you found them on a stroll now that your knees are recovering. Either way, hydrangeas are favorite of mine. I try to keep a bouquet of them dried in my house.
These were on a stroll but we do have some in our garden ( we live in one of the top three famous for hydrangea places in Japan).
I find these white ones more delicate and alluring somehow
The pink and blue hydrangeas are such a seaside boarding house plant here. Those look far more glamorously decadent.
You have peonies too, don’t you? My newly planted viburnum croaked so I’m thinking of a nice blousy white peony as a replacement.
I prefer peonies by about 700%. Possibly my favourite flowers. Adorable. So beautiful. If I am honest with you, I hate hydrangeas.
These appealed to me in an Isabelle Adjani Werner Herzog kind of way as a maiden in Nosferatu. Or else a Southern Gothic resonance. Actual blue hydrangeas….I can see them from my window now where I am writing- they are EVERYWHERE here – it’s a kind of hydrangea nightmare.
Hydrangea nightmare. I like that.
Why for vampires, because they’re luminous in the night? Or, oh I see, they’re colorless. They’re lovely. Do you also have in Japan the pale white and green ones that turn a pinky bronze in autumn?
We have every bloody kind of hydrangea you can imagine. I get sick of the sight of them!
Lol! Well, I love them Mr. Cranky-pants, 😉 particularly the garden variety luminous blue, which I could never get to grow when I tried.
I think that would make them so much more covetable; it’s more like an infestation where we live!
I like hydrangeas in small doses, but like you I would much prefer peonies. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers ever, just adore them.
