Today's Flowers #48: Lace-Capped Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla normalis also knows as Lace-Capped Hydrangea or simply as lacecap. It is as easy to grow as the traditional mopheads on Cape Cod. They are just starting to come into flower this week. The leaves can easily have rust spots when it gets rain, otherwise it is quite a joy and easy task to photograph it.

I've heard of it but never seen it. It indeed looks like lace.
Lovely shot!

What a gorgeous flower! I enlarged the photo to see the lovely lacy detail.

thanks! The photographs are probably better because I splurged my saved wages on a digital SLR. I'm also a lot less stressed, as in the last few months the school I was working for became even more disorganised than it was before, and we found it very difficult to find out what was going on, or get help with things.
I love the colour of this flower, think it'd make a great inspriation for a dress!

That is something I have never seen here - although I should very much like to.
