Thursday's Pink Post

I am going to stay with a friend for a couple of nights so won't be here tomorrow to post Thursday's Pink post. Hope that this will work if I set it up to post automatically for me!

This was one of the lovely hydrangeas we saw at Stourhead on Saturday - in case you'd like to see some more of them I will add them below.

Aren't they lovely - I was surprised to see so many still in bloom as ours in the garden are over now - though we did bring them from France so perhaps they are a different variety and don't care for the cooler climes here! This blue one reminded me of our time in France as they were most often blue in our area.
I'll catch up with you all on my return.


  1. I love hydrangeas, the pink especially when they go over and the colour goes that chocolate mousse-y shade. They last forever it seems, brought into the house and dried.

  2. They are great dried aren't they? Love the floppy ones best x

  3. Every time I see hydrangea pictures I resolve to get one for my garden - lovely pink.

  4. Hi Jane, they are such gorgeous blooming flowers! A big globe of pink and blue delights!
    Lovely photographs and post!

  6. So nice to see some pink. Everything around here is orange,yellow,red and fall brown right now.

    We have such a hard time with the pink and blue hydrangas here because of the ph levels of the soil. They do wonderful in your garden.

    Have a nice visit. Be sure and bring back some fun pictures to share.

  7. Beautiful Hydrangas I think the blue variety are my favourite.

    Have a lovely day,
