Blue Summer Hydrangeas and Unexpected Gifts by Nancy Medina

Blue Summer Hydrangeas

Oil on Archival Panel

A very rare treat to find fresh blue hydrangeas in the market today! I received another rare gift recently, a book of poetry from one of my collectors and someone I've grown quite fond of over the years. She has granted me permission to share some of her writings with you, and this poem is one of my favorites from her book, Something Old, Something New, Poems by Margo Koller.

The Hedge

The neighbor across the street
Keeps her hedge clipped
She hires someone
To cut it.
Sitting with my cup of tea,
Looking out the window I see
The hedge surreptitiously
Sends out runners
Reaching with desperate
Newly leafed tendrils
To the sky.

Such beautiful hydrangeas and the same color as mine in the yard. Such a lovely periwinkle blue!
