Putting on a Show

At the urging of a recent (as of today) WordPress friend and excellent photographer, Timmothy Price at http://offcenternoteven.com, I decided to start sharing some pictures I have taken with my iPhone, along with watercolor paintings I have done. Please don’t judge either too harshly because I am strictly an amateur concerning both. I place no copyright on the photos I share; anyone is free to copy and use.

In early spring, the flowers on an oak-leaf hydrangea are creamy white…
Then, the flowers gradually take on a pink hue…
And as summer sets in, turn bronze.

I have several oak leaf hydrangeas around my home. They are very hardy, but do best in partial shade.

KT Workman grew up in the rural South without the benefit of cell phones or the Internet, a time and place that has heavily influenced her writing. To this day, when she puts pen to paper—or fingers to keyboard—nine times out of ten her mind veers south onto that old, familiar road. It goes home. KT resides in Arkansas where she writes a wide variety of gothic and speculative fiction, poetry, and dabbles in watercolor painting and amateur photography.

  1. I’m so happy you shared these photos. They are beautiful. I have never seen an oak leave hydrangea. Hydrangeas don’t like our dry climate. They are so beautiful. When we lived in Spain we roamed around northern Spain for a few weeks and saw walls of hydrangeas in some areas. They were gorgeous.

    1. Thanks, Timothy…you inspired me. 😊
      Oak-leaf hydrangeas don’t seem to mind the heat, as long as they are protected from afternoon sun. But they do require supplemental watering in hot, dry spells.
