Hey Tracery Blog readers, it’s Doug–
Hydrangeas are one of our favorite flowers…they are simple, natural and unfussy–exemplifying many of the characteristics we admire in anything we find to be beautiful. Right now here in Birmingham, they are everywhere! I don’t think I’ve ever seen them so pretty as they are this summer. The hedgerow that separates my house from the ones on the street behind me is accented every few yards with huge old bright blue hydrangeas that were planted long before I lived here.
Just outside my back door there’s a big oak leaf hydrangea that’s bursting with white cone-shaped blossoms.
Of course I couldn’t resist clipping some branches and bringing them inside to enjoy.
We’ve used hydrangeas many times for photoshoots in our clients’ homes too, often cut right from the yard! Here are a few more photos of hydrangeas from our portfolio:
