Macro Flowers Saturday

This is a Lacecap Hydrangea.
They grow best in moist, but well-drained soil preferring a cool semi-shaded position.
I love their beautiful leaves as much as I love their delicate blossoms...

I've never seen one like that. It's just lovely, as if a florist had arranged it with baby's breath already.

I think I like the Lace-caps better than the Mop-tops. Nice shot. MB

The colors are so beautiful. And, when I clicked to enlarge, the texture in the leaves are like fabric, just gorgeous.

How I envy the person who can keep these hydrangeas blooming.

Those are really beautiful.

I've always looked at the flowers before, not the leaves. Now that you point it out, the leaves are beautiful too! A perfect green, and the veins add so much textural interest!
