Button Flowers & Hydrangea Details

Remember these hydrangea pictures where I pointed out the little button
inside each flower? I noticed another thing about them this week.

Here's another peek at the little buttons inside the middle of each tiny flower:


Look! Those little buttons open up into teeny tiny flowers in the middle of each small bloom!
Isn't that amazing!!!
You already know how much I love hydrangeas - I've been looking at the color variations even within each petal of each bloom, looking at the little buttons in the middle and even the charming shape of the hydrangea leaves!

Ok, I had to run outside and get some pictures of the leaves
after thinking about how pretty they are too!
I certainly could not cut so precise and beautifully!

Oh, just one more thing? Look at this bloom - just beginning to open!
All my blooms start this color and then after they open, their color develops!

Alright, I promise I'm done.
(For now!)

My (hopefully) blue hydrangeas are starting to form buds! Can't wait to see what color they are.I've been waiting 3 years for them to bloom since I planted them. I dumped about 3 pounds of coffee grounds on them last week, so maybe it will help? And of course my white hydrangeas are looking sturdy and forming blooms, so I won't ignore them. I'm glad to know that the blooms don't start blue. Thanks!
