Autumn Hydrangea

A couple of years ago the kids gave me a small hydrangea plant,its now a gorgeous large bush and has been happily blooming all summer in my front garden.Recently the colours have been changing and it looks even more interesting.

  1. I love your hydrangea painting, Azra. Not only is it a beautiful work, but it reminds me of a plant that I had for years. I loved that they bloomed for a long time and then changed colors. I especially liked the green color they change to in late fall. I would cut them then, and dry them for Christmas wreaths, and winter bouquets.

  2. What a great painting! I love the thick paint in places. I also love that quote. I have never heard that before.

  9. I've been trying to grow hydrangeas for years but the deer have managed to eat them before they bloom. This year I found some smelly stuff which seems to have saved them-next year I hope to have blooms to paint. Lovely painting.

  10. Thanks Chris,how fortunate you are to have deer roaming about,shame that they eat the hydrangea!Sounds like you've found a solution though.
