My Own Personal Rainbow

First - I want to say "Thank You" for the nice compliments on my new header. Those are some pictures I took last Summer of gladiolas I bought at the farmers' market.
Some of you may remember when I did a post in May on my little rainbow . The morning sun causes reflections in my kitchen area from a crystal candle holder that is on my dining table.

A couple of weeks ago it showed up on some hydrangeas I had on the counter.


The blue in the first photo is actually truer to the color of the hydrangeas I had. Not sure why some photographed with more of a purplish tint. Regardless of the color, I love hydrangeas!

NO - I did not grow these! I would love to be able to grow them, but I don't have the right conditions where I am.

I love hydrangeas (I actually can grow them here in the Pacific Northwest). And I've got large leaded glass window panels hanging in the dining room windows that face west, plus a glass dining room table with beveled edges and I get rainbows every sunny afternoon. Isn't it great fun to have personal rainbows when the sun shines?

Love the rainbows! How Cheery!

You may not have grown those hydrangeas but you sure gave them life. That is a gorgeous mosaic.

Mary said...

Oh what beautiful hydrangeas! Blue flowers are my favorites, although I can't grow hydrangeas here because the deer will eat them. :(

Beautiful mosaic. Your hydrangeas are gorgeous. I have one little bush but the deer love it so I doubt if I will see even one blossom!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I enjoyed looking at all your pretty rainbows reflections and hydrangea mosaic!

Sadly pruned my hydrangea bushes too much last year and they are not flowering this season. I learned from my error!

So beautiful! They are like the hydrangea's my SIL brought up for our 25th anniversary party two weekends ago. We now have two hydrangea's in our front garden and are keeping them well 'hydra-ted'! It will be interesting what color they are next year when they bloom as it depends on the pH of the soil.

Beautiful flowers and the rainbow is icing on the cake. Trying to do a little catching up, love that new bird cage. I have been collecting a few myself. I just love all the shapes and sizes. Have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.
