Big Pink Head

Hydrangeas, Canon S120
27th August 2015

The local landscape here in France is quite chalky and alkaline.   The local hydrangeas in the area all demonstrate just quite how alkaline the soil is; they all grow with varying shades and intensities of pink.

They seem to rather like the climate with the bushes being covered by massive large pink flower heads.

A dash of vinegar may be what is called for to dampen the pinks to a powder blue.
