French Mops

Hydrangea Macrophylla, Charm Hydrangea, French Mopheads, or "Endless Summer"

These floppy mops are growing in my garden and I have a few that are this pretty periwinkle blue...but most have green blooms. I have been trying to get the soil acidity just right so that they turn a deep cobalt blue.

The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography, was a Victorian-era means of communication in which various flowers, herbs, plants, and floral arrangements were used to send secret messages. What a delightful way for a charming gentleman to eloquently and silently express his feelings to a young lady with the delicate scent of flowers.

The symbolic meaning of hydrangeas suggest vain glory; heartlessness; a boaster; frigidity; thank you for understanding (this last one is the meaning I prefer).

French Mops

This beauty I have listed in my Etsy shop. I think it is just perfect for a bedroom, bathroom, cottage kitchen, or mud room. The little lamb embossed on the hand made Italian pitcher is precious, which makes this a perfect photograph for even a child's room.

It is available as an ACEO and 5"x 7" or 8" x 12" matted enlargements. I have also made some of my laminated magnets out of this image and they are very nice. This is an unretouched digital photograph ~ the colours in the flowers were as vibrant as you see them here!

Thank you for stopping by. Ciao amici,
