Today's Flowers # 65

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.

This is a Hydrangea from my neighbors garden. It does put out multiple blooms and comes in different colors. Thanks for the help on the name.
There was a little ant on the flower so I had to get a close-up of it.
While I was there I thought on photo of the single flower would be nice.
Visit above to see a lot of great flowers.

How beatiful Tom. In December, our hydrangeas are at their best so we also call them "Christmas flowers".

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Gealeyn: Definitely does. :)

Arija said...

Tom the dove in your header seems to have moved...

Dirkjogt said...

Nice colours! About the snakes: luckely we don't have any in our garden.

Darla said...

Very nice...I like how the ph of the soil changes the colors of the hydrangea from pinks to blues..

JOE TODD said...

"But the flower leaned aside
And thought of naught to say,
And morning found the breeze
A hundred miles away."

So says Robert Frost
Have a great day
