HYDRANGEA or as it is known in many countries: HORTENSIA

Gender: Feminine
Usage: Ancient Roman, English, Spanish
Feminine form of the Roman family name Hortensius, possibly derived from Latin hortus “garden“.

This photo was taken some good while ago in a garden in Finland and i  still like it very much.  Sorry for not taking part in the PP for such a long time.

The photo is totally untouched, not a thing added, nothing taken away.


Tis for now. Rii xx

I wrote these lines summer last year about this picture:

It is the final showtime, showdown
for the flowers and plants
before the onset of autumn…
Nostalgic? Yes, very much so.

I am looking forward to autumn
but tis the winter, the winter,
that chills me right down to me blonde bones
and even blonder marrow!!

Hydrangea flowers tinged with yellow and pink, looking like
the most intricate lace, methinks.

Have a super weekend. Take great care of your great selves. 🙂

P.S.
The photo is totally untouched, so tis as it was…
