Here is a photo of the new variety Hydrangea that we bought on Saturday.
V2 - Pre-opening
Our time out on the lake was so nice - perfect weather, fun and fellowship. We were a group of 25 in the end.
Thanx so much for all who took the time to comment and vote on yesterday's image - much appreciated.
Have a great week !!

These are GORGEOUS hydrangeas. Good grief. Never seen these before and I gotta show my mum these. She's gonna flip.

Excellent shots and presentation in both but V1 enters the 'stunning' arena.

Two very nicely captured shots of your new hydrangea, Herman, and although V 1 is excellent on showing off it's colour, it's your V 2 pre-opening shot that appeals to me the more photographically.
