Beautiful Hydrangea~

~Lace Cap Hydrangea~

These beautiful Lace Cap Hydrangea were everywhere this weekend. I was visiting the south shore of Massachusetts- and it was abundant in gorgeous blue Hydrangeas of every variety.


This little Bumble Bee was busy gathering nectar from this Lace Cap Hydrangea.

We have a yard full of Endless Summer Hydrangea~ they are a real favorite of ours. I have posted about them before- you can read that post here.

If you have a fondness for this beautiful shade of blue- and you love the glorious flower of the Hydrangea, I encourage you to try the Endless Summer variety of Hydrangea- perfect for colder climates.

Unfortunately, the Lace Cap Hydrangea does not winter well here in the northeast, but it does very well in Massachusetts and areas south of Massachusetts.


  1. I love Hydrangeas,any color, mixed colors; it doesn't matter to me. Right now, our are pink with green - lovely to look at.

  2. Hydrangeas are one of the most amazing bushes...I love to see one laden with those heavy blue blooms, draping a walkway or an entry.
    The color is so inviting.

  3. at a glance, looks like there were butterflies surrounding the flowers...oh yeah, those are part of the petals!...duhhh
    ps: sorry still too early,must have my coffee asap! ;)

  4. It's such a sweet happy flower.

  5. I second Kwana's comment. PS That license plate reads: 3 Daughters
