One of the best things I’ve taken up lately is hiking/walking with Paul and Leslie once a week. This time of year flowering is definitely better than birding, and, since Paul hadn’t been to Bloedel for years, we convinced him to join us on our walk.
This time of year, the hydrangea take center stage.
If you look closely, you’ll find some unique varieties.
Not sure what these flowers are, but they beautifully complement the hydrangea.
Of course, a visit to Bloedel wouldn’t be complete without finding a rare plant we’ve never seen before and don’t have a clue what it might be.
