Winter Light and Shadow

Hydrangea m. "Endless Summer"

It’s cold out there–in the teens.  Yet as I dart to my car I can’t help but notice the morning light illuminating the hydrangea’s winter form.  One lone blossom that I didn’t cut for my vase indoor before the hard frost. (I’m still enjoying those blossoms by the way).  The snow’s blue in shadow and fairly close to the summer color of these hydrangeas or at least as I remember it.

In case you don’t know the plant you can go to website and  learn all about it. Its a great one for a New England summer blooming blue hydrangea because its bud hardy here inland.

P.S.  Here’s hydrangea above in early fall.
