Today's Flowers #54: Mophead Hydrangea

We have shown perviously in our Today's Flower blog of the Lace-Capped Hydrangea and the white Annabelle Hydrangea from our Garden. This time we show the most popular Mophead Hydrangea. They are not from our garden. When I went back to Cape Cod in late Spring, I gave all our Mophead Hydrangea a good pruning of its dried branches from last year, not knowing by doing it, I inhibited the flowering of this year.

These photos were taken at Point Reyes Station at Marine County north of San Francisco. As we all know that the color of hydrangea changes depending on the acidity of its soil.

Beautiful blooms! This is my first year that I got blooms on my hydrangea ... and the plant is five years old. The reason for my lack of blooms is a son and a husband who don't know how to use a weed trimmer and mowed it off on me every year since I planted it. This year I took over the weed trimming and I have beautiful blooms once again.
