The magnificent hydrangeas at Fountaindale Grand Manor
Today I was photographing more 'Christmas in July' images inside the Manor
but I was drawn out into the garden.....

From the front gate and all through the beautiful old gardens
 the hydrangeas are in full bloom right now.
I was completely overwhelmed at the sheer size and colours of these beauties
and they where everywhere.  
It must be that wonderful Robertson soil!
or is it the mist?
I just had to share them with you...... xx Coty

  1. Those are stunning...whatever the reason!! what a beautiful place to read, write, meditate, even do a photoshoot...I can see a table set or a young girl frolicking in the mist amongst those flowers
