{Our 6 Different Hydrangeas}

Already on June 17, we had our 6 different Hydrangea varieties blooming and husband Pieter took photos of them. A bit late, but still I want to share these beauties with you.
First a Mophead Hydrangea in an exceptional purple color that we got from our friends the Bogles.
Second variety is a Hydrangea Macrophylla Ayesha.
These Hydrangea Macrophylla Ayesha appear in soft tones from pale pink to light blue...
These are beauties and the color varies from spot to spot.
Here you see the pale pink ones...
A blue Mophead Hydrangea...
It is difficult to tell which one is my favorite but I sure love this color!
Hydrangea Serrata Pretty Maiden, a Lacecap variety.
And a White Mophead Hydrangea...
Lots of Blue Mophead Hydrangeas.
These ordinary Mophead Hydrangeas are very pretty too.
So which one is your favorite?

  2. Dear Mariette,

    I love all your beautiful hydrangeas - such gorgeous colours and they must look wonderful all around your garden.
    We have one in a pot that has been dormant most of the winter and just coming out with lots of new leaves.
    Also I love how fabulous your home is looking with the new coat of paint and everything - don't think I have remarked about the finished look.
    Hope that you are enjoying the weekend
    Sending love and hugs

  3. Mariette,
    Your hydrangeas are beautiful. I think my favorite one is the Blue Mophead Hydrangea because it looks like it has a touch of purple in it. The photos your husband took are wonderful. I want to thank you for your comment on my anniversary post. It touched my heart very much.

    I hope you are enjoying the summer days, dear.

    Love,

      It sure has an intens hue of purple in it as well.
      You are quite welcome, it was a pleasure for visiting you on your special anniversary.

  11. Hoi Mariette,

    Wat een mooie kleuren hortensia's hebben jullie in de tuin staan! Ik denk dat de lichtblauwe hortensia Blue Mobhead, mijn favoriet is. Bij ons doen ze het jammergenoeg niet allemaal even goed. Het blijft nog even zoeken welke plaats in de tuin het meest geschikt is.

    Dank je wel ook voor je lieve berichtje over mijn vader! Maak je maar geen zorgen hoor. Hij knipte slechts was losse sprietjes weg. Wij hebben gelukkig een grasmaaier :-)!!

    Fijne week!

    1. Beste Madelief,
      Ja, die kleuren zijn heel erg mooi en ze staan in onze tuin kennelijk op de juiste plekken. Het valt niet altijd mee om in je tuin ook het beste resultaat van bepaalde planten te kunnen 'oogsten'.
      Hè, ben blij dat de Vader niet het hele gazon hoefde te knippen op die manier!
      Ook een fijne nieuwe zomer week.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  12. Lieve Mariette,

    Een maand geleden stonden mijn hortensia's er ook nog zo mooi bij,maar met het warme weer en felle zon hebben ze veel geleden,zien er nu uit als laat in het najaar.

    Blauwe bloemen doen het bij mij altijd goed van welk soort dan ook.
    Dankjewel voor het delen van deze bloemenpost!!

      Ja, blauw is je lievelingskleur; inclusief het mooie blauw van Griekenland...
      Hier blijft er als het zo door blijft regenen van onze tuin ook niks meer over. Er is wéér een overstromings waarschuwing tot morgenvroeg 8:00u. Het valt er met bakken uit en het is al donker om 17:00u. De dag leek aanvankelijk zo mooi te worden. We liepen nog in de tuin, nou ja, door het drassige gras en Pieter op zijn nieuwe rubber clogs nog helemaal de ronde gemaakt. Heb ook nog een van onze poezen moeten redden die achter de grote eik zat te húilen en niet naar huis durfde. Onder grote paraplu heb ik ze kliedernat opgepakt en afgedroogd. We proberen ze binnen te houden want zo zijn de bruggen er uitgeslagen en kunnen ze niet eens meer oversteken vanuit ons bos. Lieve groetjes,
      Mariette

      In previous years when I did post about them I mentioned that husband Pieter had given them water as Hydrangeas love to drink... This year they got their share and more than that. We're getting tired of our torrential rains. It never dries out this way.

  19. Dearest Mariette, It is so hard to decide. I have a few mop heads and I love those but the Ayesha is new to me. I love how the petals cup in. They appear very flirty. They would look fabulous in a large bouquet. I think they are my favorite.
    Thanks for sharing the beauty of the blossoms.

      En het weerbericht is niet rooskleurig; het houdt níet op. De grond is overal zó verzadigd het water kan niet meer weg.

    Your Hydrangeas are simply gorgeous, ALL of them!!!! I love the colors and the different shapes, it's really hard to pick a favorite one... The Macrophylla Ayesha variety is very unusual (not sure I had ever seen it before) and I find it very sweet with its little "curled" blossoms, lovely!

      Thank you for your compliment and indeed, Hydrangeas love to drink lots of water or else the wilt away and let their heads hang. But at the moment we get flooded so that will not be good either.

      Hydrangeas do love plenty of water. As for heat, we have temperatures in summer of over 40°C so that is like tropical climate for two months of the year.

    The blue Hydrander called Macrophilla is really nice. The photos that Pieter took as well certainly enhance the flowers even more. There are many soft tones within the flowers and the colour varieties are very interesting as well. Hyrangeas are a very good hand me down and are very sterdy and can grow anywhere. Even when they are dried they maintain their colour and can be made into a floral arrangement and framed for keep sake.

      Hydrangeas are such rewarding plants and usually not very demanding.
      We usually don't dry them as we have many fresh flowers almost year round. Fresh is far better than anything dried!

      Thanks for your visit and sure they are all lovely! Why do you think we have six varieties? If it would be that easy to select one favorite we would have.
      My husband Pieter has been a great photographer all of his life, so this comes natural and I don't even have to ask him.
      Best regards to both of you.
