I did say, a few posts back, that I preferred the Lace variety to these full-headed Hydrangeas, but that said,
I have always liked this archive photo. The bloom itself is no great image, adding a birdbath makes it
a whole different photo.
There's some noise in the image, it was taken 8 years ago, in a shady spot, with an ISO640 setting - the
up-to-date cameras I'm using now would look much, much better, things have really improved
over the 8 years. Unfortunately the bush has been cut back and the birdbath is gone.
