Floral Friday : In a Vase

Friday, August 1, 2014

Well, we arrived safely in Canada and have been here for just under two weeks.  It is so beautiful at this time of the year (we normally come in Winter so it's a lovely change for us), everything is so lush and green and pretty flowers are everywhere - both in gardens and growing wildly.  I've never seen so many vivid colours and pretty flowers in such abundance.  Coming from an Australian coastal environment, it's a refreshing change for us and a bit of a novelty.  I can't stop taking photos of flowers - my husband thinks I've become quite the botanist!

We are also very lucky to have a great walking trail behind our cottage.  It is heaven.  Both for walking, cycling and for looking at pretty wild flowers.  I was going to go and pick a whole bunch of different flowers and arrange them in a vase for this month's Floral Friday "In a Vase" theme but I will save those for another day.  This month's hero has to be my Mother-in-Law's hydrangeas.  They are the most impressive hydrangeas I've ever seen and are huge, perfectly formed and so healthy.  I have no idea of the variety but I know they are the nicest and biggest ones I've ever seen.  I couldn't resist showing them off.  

What do you think? Have you ever seen such heavenly hydrangeas?

There are quite a few other bloggers joining Under Lock & Key's Floral Friday challenge so please do take a moment to check out the links below to see what the other lovely bloggers in this series have to say about their floral arrangements.

Floral Fridays is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along, please email Trishie for next month's theme.
