sunday posy :: hydrangea

The hydrangea is my favorite flowering perennial, and this particular one (of just a pair at our place) is in bloom. Someday, I’ll again have a little house surrounded by these gorgeous blooms. It will be all flowering abundance from spring through fall: allium, peonies, hydrangeas, daisies, clematis, lilacs, and maybe some roses. Petals in sun-bleached shades of lavender, pink, blue, white, and peach, plus little dots of yellow here and there. Dark green leaves that provide a restful, cool background. A front porch so generous in size that I can invite neighbors to sit there with me and chat over a cold drink or wait out a summer shower with a book in hand. IMG_6149

Do hydrangeas cause you to daydream, too?
