June 19, 2012 -- more hydrangeas

You don't want to see all the ugly things I did before I landed on this.

And this, which I like even better, because it's so simple. Just one small hydrangea blossom standing alone.

But in case you're interested in how many complicated things sometimes have to be rejected before landing on to something simple, here's what I started with today: an array of hydrangea blossoms in every color I could find. Not pretty.

Then I tried using the bloom that was my favorite color (sort of a lilac-wine) in green cereal bowls. Better, but still not very satisfying.

Why I didn't have enough sense to start simple, I have no idea. I think I just felt obliged to showcase all those many-colored hydrangeas, because I've never had such profustion and variety in the garden before.  Just goes to show you, too many choices as much of an impediment to good design as too few!

  1. Loved the hydrangeas in the bowl in the top pic...you are a clever one! I'm so excited to be playing catch up on your wonderful posts...it will take forever if I stop to comment on every one that I like, so please take for granted that I love every single one.
