Your Haiku poetry is precious, Mickie. I dare say I could never come up with so many so quickly and so beautifully at that.

Jill said...

These are stunning and your Haiku is amazing!

Tammy said...

Blue beauties.

So beautiful, Mickie. I've seen pink hydrangeas, and blue ones, and mixed pink and blue, but the yellow is a first for me.
I love "Nature's harmless hoax"!

Arija said...

Mickie, you have such a lovely blog. I'm sorry I have not been able to visit more often.
These hydrangeas a re a dream.
Thank you for being a friend and brightening my days even though I can as yet not visit back anywhere near as much as I would like. Things here are rather traumatically standing on their head at present and for some time to come.
