Blue Hydrangea


12x12
oil on canvas

My blue hydrangea has a very intense hue this summer thanks to all the used teabags I dug into the soil- a very happy plant indeed!
I am always intrigued by the intrinsic arrangement of blossoms in this amazing flower!
Here in South Africa we call Hydrangeas "Christmas Roses" because they are at the height of their beauty und everyone uses them for christmas decoration in one way or the other!
