Hydrangea

Hydrangea

chaotic
patterns
capture my
attention,
coke or
pepsi,
beauty
or drab,
i see
something
that goes
beyond my
limited
imagination,
my fading
vision

to begin,
we don’t
really
know her
story,
and she
won’t tell.
somethings
are better
not said.
but he said,
wanted to
prove his
cleverness.

flowers
at the
grocery,
pale purple
colour seeps
into a green
template,
green flower
shaped form
that will
become a
certain
beautiful
reality

      1. They are indeed. When they are clustered together (e.g. in garden centres πŸ˜… what were those…?) or on the shrub itself or when dried in a large vase they are a delight. I especially love the variegated ones

      2. Wonderful! In garden centres they always look marvelous and tempting because they are so abundant. Your way is the best way to shop! All the joy, none of the expense. 😁

      3. Hahaha! Me too! They seem to lose something when I get them home…maybe it’s a feeling of resigned doom knowing I don’t have green fingers. After a while they rally though! 🌺

  1. – Nikki blue, Doris, Mophead or Endless Summer – some of the sweetheart names associated with the hydrangea. The general and fond name given to all of them in my country is Christmas Flowers. A summer flower, at Christmas the hydrangeas are in full bloom. They are pruned back in Autumn (April and May) after their flower season ends. Smitten by their beauty gardners generally leave the delicate, dry flowers and skeletal petals on the bush for as long as possible. Yielding to a vintage look, the dried flower heads make exquisite floral arrangements.

    Coke, Pepsi and Drab, the association makes me very curious.

    1. Hydrangeas grow outdoors here too. If you cut flowering branches and hang them to dry when they are still blooming, you can preserve a great deal of what they are. People do that with roses too. (They will fade a bit.)
