Flower of the Day (FOTD): Blue Hydrangea

Self looooves hydrangeas. She has about six potted hydrangeas, and two in the ground. The two in the ground are dying. The ones in the pots are thriving. Her soil is so bad.

Most of her hydrangea are white, except for one. She re-potted it last year, and it nearly died. But this year, it recovered. So here’s a shot of her blue hydrangea, on the front porch.

The prompt for the last week of June 2022 is FLOWERS AND LEAVES.

Inspired by Cee’s close-up of a lotus flower, self tried doing some extreme close-ups of flowers around her garden. Here’s a scabiosa, it’s blooming on her front porch.

Lens-Artists Challenge # 180: Favorite Images of 2021

Thank you to Tina Schell of Travels and Trifles, host of this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge, Favorite Images of 2021.

  • First and foremost, let me begin by wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year. As always, the turn of the calendar page to January 1st brings with it an opportunity to begin anew ā€“ having learned lessons, accomplished some of our goals, or perhaps having simply survived to start a new day. Whatever our thoughts about the year just passed, we once again have a chance to make the new one even better. — Tina Schell

Without further ado, here are self’s favorite images of 2021:

Despite the pandemic, self managed to do quite a lot of things in 2021.
