I was outside yesterday photographing the hydrangeas for making new products to sell in my wedding store.
This year the flowers are very different looking. For one thing many of the blooms are smaller than last year and I don’t have any that turned that bright blue that everyone seems to love.
But I am getting some odd colors on the one in my yard. As the blooms age I am seeing pink and that light greenish color on some of the heads.
I haven’t uploaded my new photos yet and will probably do that today, and I was hoping for some white flowers to photograph – maybe in a neighbor’s yard, but that didn’t happen.
I was talking with an online friend who lives in Canada and she was kind enough to send me a couple of her white hydrangea photos to use. She also mentioned how the hydrangeas didn’t do so well this year.
I have been meaning to get some of them cut to dry too. Last year I hung them upside down in the window of my bedroom and they dried out nicely, although I think they have to have plenty of water before being cut.
