Faded Hydrangea Flowers

Most of the old flowers are toasty brown.  Time to clean up.

Quite a pile leftover...

Oh those colors on the faded flowers!  Sky and taupe...

...mixed with pale chartreuse and ivory...

...the vaguest hint of pink blended in...

    1. They are, aren't they? I like them more and more as time goes by. Lots of people call them "old lady" flowers, but I realize now "old ladies" might be on to something!

  2. I sometimes think the dried colors are as interesting as the fresh. My wife will attach them to a grapevine wreath to keep in the house over the winter.

    1. Oh, great idea, Les, I need to try that. I have a plain grapevine wreath that could use some decoration. Thanks!

  3. Our hydrangeas are only just starting to bloom. We have to leave the spent blooms on the plant through winter here in the UK, to protect next year's blooms from frost.
