Saturday

Hydrangea, Hortensia and Some Cacti

Busy...busy..busy..February is quite a busy month for me. Despite of that I am very thankful that I was able to accomplish some things. Thanks God for all the blessings also. I am offering you these wonderful flowers called Hydrangea or Hortensia. Back home in the Philippines, we call it million flowers due to its many petals.


Hydrangea flowers are produced from early spring to late autumn; they grow in flowerheads (corymbs or panicles) at the ends of the stems. In many species, the flowerheads contain two types of flowers, small fertile flowers in the middle of the flowerhead, and large, sterile bract-like flowers in a ring around the edge of each flowerhead. Other species have all the flowers sterile and of the same size.

Uwielbiam hortensje ( bukiety kwiatowe), a kaktusy też stoją na parapecie. Ładne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam. *** I love hydrangeas (bouquets), and cacti also stand on the windowsill. Nice pictures. Yours.

Beautiful hydrangeas. My favorite is the blue one because I don't see much of them in our parts.
