Hydrangeas are plants that take me back to my childhood home. They were the sentinels at our front door. My father regularly salted the ground with different metals to change the colour of the flowers but I never remember him getting his this lovely shade of deep pink.
As we have just completed October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Australia) I thought I would dedicate this work to the women who have succumbed to this disease and the advances that will come from those who have participated in clinical trials. Hydrangeas are particularly apt as they are small insignificant flowers whose size is overcome by them bunching together and being contrasted with the dramatic green of the foliage that the shrub surrounds them with. This pic shows a small x of leaves that represents the hope that in the future there will be a cure or a preventative treatment.
