I was outside yesterday photographing the hydrangeas for making new products to sell in my Zazzle stationery 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 really bright blue.
But I am getting some odd colors on the shrub in my yard. As the blooms age I am seeing pink and light green on some of the flowers.
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.
