Sweetness



This Pinky Winky Hydrangea reminds me
of a fluffy, two-scoop, vanilla-strawberry ice cream cone.


Insects swarm it with wild abandon,
burying their faces in the sweet tasting blooms.


Its fragrance, soft and spicy, is as delicate as its rose-tipped petals.
What a glorious way to move into Fall.

  2. What a sweet hydrangea! I have three hydrangeas myself but none of them are hydrangea paniculata, your post made me think where I could manage to squeeze one in :-)

    1. Oh you must get one! They are so easy to grow and in my case, turn pink just as the weather starts to cool and everything else dies off.

  4. You read my mind:) I was thinking ice cream cone as well. Such light and airy flowers. You really know how to get those macros and flower petals to work for you:)

    1. I'm guessing it's especially hot today? Okay, so what's your favourite flavour(s)? Yeah, flowers are easy because they stay nice and still for the camera :)

    2. I love lilacs from my hometown. Here I'd have to say the Mexican Bird of Paradise OR Vinca flower. And today....it's raining all day long!!! So do not want to work:(

  7. Gorgeous light and softness! I've not heard of these hydrangeas before. Seems the insects treat these as if they ARE ice cream.
