Summer Hydrangeas


Summer Hydrangeas
Front lawns, porches, white fences.
Run through the sprinkler.



I have prepared this post so as to participate in Floral Friday Fotos and Haiku My Heart!

  3. Hi Libby, yes this is lovely, very pink. However, i still prefer the blue if i am the gardener. We cannot grow hydrangeas to its full glory in the hot tropics!

  7. Ah yes, I don't know or ever seem to have the need to learn the names of these and other beautiful flowers, but I can recognize a sprinkler on a hot summer day sure enough. Very pleasant thoughts and photos. lovely Haiku.

  9. did you grow these ones?

    mine made the smallest,
    saddest
    blooms
    as they love to drink you know!
    sots, they are!!
    and we are still in drought


    yes
    yes
    certainly
    your haiku captured the evocative mood
    of these sweet flowers
    & i call Hydrangeas ---> grandmother flowers
    as mine had them in her yard
    beside
    the back kitchen door
    and
    even as i read your poem
    i can hear the sprinklers
    and
    smell the water in the air...


    {{ thank you for that,
    so much }}

  12. The pink of your picture and your haiku take me back to my granny's yard and being a small child... with so much life to come... and the embrace of her arms that hold me still as I remember... thank you so!

    1. You are the second person that said that hydrangeas remind them of their grandmothers! For that reason alone, we should all plant some!
