Snapshot Saturday~May 11

A trip to a local nursery has given me lots of fodder for my next few installments of Snapshot Saturday, hosted by Alyce at At Home With Books.

I love flowers and since I’m not much of a gardener, I jumped at the chance to visit the nursery with my friends Gail and Alice.  The sights were incredible and I’m going to get the most mileage from them that I can.

Beautiful hydrangea…



I like this photo because the not quite bloomed flower in the center appears to be wearing the blooming flowers as a head-dress.  Ok, so that might sound a little strange to you  but that’s what it looks like to me!

I love the full pink color of the surrounding flowers and the yellow to green to pink of the one in the center.  I also love the touch of green from the leaves.  Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers and I love to see the bushes when they are full-grown and covered in blooms.  I’ll have to check the neighborhood to see if I can find one of those!

Happy Snapshot Saturday!

  1. beautiful photo choice, fran!
    i love the flowers blooming at this time of year…lily of the valley is my favourite, but all the colours are so vibrant!
    looking forward to more of your photos!

    • Thanks, Cathy! It’s funny, I love lily of the valley, too, but I rarely see them anymore. Used to have some in the yard but I think they died off. 😦 I should get some and plant them. Glad you like my photo!

  2. Hydrangeas are some of my favorite flowers. I’m always trying to get them to turn blue though. Here’s Mine

    • Paulita, apparently there is something to do with the acidity of your soil that makes them come out whatever color they darned well please! Not sure about that, but that’s what I’ve always heard! Have a great day!

  3. What a great idea! I’m not a gardener, either, but do adore seeing flowers in all their glory…and wearing a head-dress! lol


  4. That’s a gorgeous hydrangea — I love the color!

    Here is my SATURDAY SNAPSHOT post.

  5. I’m a big fan of white hydrangea but this fuschia is to die for. 🙂

    • I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen white hydrangea. I do think that it depends on your soil what color it comes out. Maybe white isn’t a New Jersey color. Glad you like it, Joy…Have a great day!

  6. I love hydrangeas; they are some of my favorites. Actually, I kind of love all flowers…one of the peonies in my flower beds is just starting to bloom and it’s beautiful. Have a great weekend Fran.

  7. OOH flowers! I cant wait – it is still only like 30 degrees here. SO annoying…LOL

  8. That’s a glorious pink – I have a hydrangea, but it’s sky blue. Someone told me the colour is to do with the soil rather than the type of plant, but I don’t know if that is right. My Snapshot is at

  9. What a fun place to take photos! Very pretty flowers!

  10. Beautiful flowers! I love Spring!

    I’m not much of a gardener either but I’ve wanted to plant hydrangeas…these are lovely!

  12. Such a pure pink Hydrangea – that’s not easy to grow!

  13. I love hydrangeas too, but I can never decide if I like the pink or the blue ones best.

  14. Flower power! It’s great. Only I was expecting a broken cookie.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
