They may be common elsewhere, but I’ve never seen a multi-color hydrangea bloom before – and wonder of wonders, there’s one in our back yard! Caught this one right after a fairly heavy rain.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Wow! Gorgeous! I used to have hydrangeas back in California, never here in Illinois. Mine were always pink though. As I recall to make them blue you have to add something to the soil (acid?).This one is breath-taking. As is the crystal-clarity! Love the mix!

  • Thanks, Nadya!

    lovely capture Monnie xx
    l heard if you put a rusty nail by the roots it will change colour, not sure if it’s true lol xx

  • Thanks, Lynn! I think you’re right – as Nadya said, the color has something to do with the type of soil. Still, it seems odd that one single flower would turn out this way. Oh well, I’ll just enjoy it while I can!
