Flower of the day Challenge: 23 June 2020

From a very young age I was exposed to Hydrangeas. My grandmother had the most beautiful Blue/Purple ones in her garden. Her pink ones was huge. I can remember a photo on my grandmothers nightstand with me next to it. I looked like a fairy under the big bloom. I wish I could get hold of it. I was about 18 months when it was taken.

While visiting Scotland I fell in love with these beauties all over again and when I got back from our tour I bought myself a plant at the nursery. It lost all it’s leaves though…. I just hope it stays alive during this cold winter. Yesterday I saw new leaves coming out. So I am trying to keep positive.

Thank you Cee for giving me the opportunity to post my Hydrangea photo’s again.

Friendly Friday Weekly Challenge – The Colour Pink

This will be my first challenge I do since…….. Oh my word I can’t even remember when last I took part in challenges. In the beginning of June I decided that something needs to change so I made myself a Bullet Journal and have give myself some daily goals to complete. I think this way I will get my creative side also working again.

I love pink and purple, but not on myself. In my garden I would love different shades of pink and purple. I have noticed that most of my flower photography though is of purple flowers…. So maybe I lean more towards purple…. Not that I really care. Both colours are so beautiful in nature and who can go against Mother nature….

I love Hydrangeas and when dad and I visited Scotland I just could not get enough photo’s of these beauties.

The next photo I took while my sister in law and I went for a one night break away. This vase with shades of pink Cosmos flowers was on a table opposite my bed.

This one is for those of us who just love both Pink and Purple….. Mother Nature surely knows what colours go perfectly together…. I don’t know the name of these beautiful flowers, but one of my Instagram followers told me they look like dancing ladies….. So that is what I will call them in the mean time.
