Wild hydrangeas

I don't have much to say today except that the oak leaf hydrangeas are blooming. 
Some people call them seven bark. 
I've always called them wild hydrangeas. 
It's a beautiful plant that grows wild in the hollow and along the road to our barn. 
Today, Jilda snapped a handful of them today as we walk and put them 
in vases of water all through the house.


  1. They are lovely - and I much prefer them to the cultivated variety of the plant. Thank you.

  2. I am fretting over the hydrangea our DIL gave us, I must have missed this flower. it is very pretty.

  3. I have never seen the wild variety ~ how beautiful! Do they have a sweet scent?

    1. It doesn’t have a sweet smell. I would call it earthy but it’s not overpowering.

  4. Wow they are very pretty! I've never seen these before either. You have a beautiful place there. Everyday seems something new appears.

  5. I've never heard of these but they sure are pretty. I was going to ask about their fragrance but I see you answered that already. Do they only grow down south or could I possibly find them up in our creepy woods?! Have a good weekend!

  6. They look so pure. How pretty they are.

  7. Yes i am totally agreed with this article and i just want say that this article is very nice and very informative article.I will make sure to be reading your blog more. You made a good point but I can't help but wonder, what about the other side? !!!!!!Thanks ispace1
