Hydrangeas grow so well in Cornwall, you find them in gardens everywhere. At this time of year they are beginning to curl and brown, but the colour also intensifies into deep turquoise, cerise and sky blue.
In an attempt to preserve the colours I am glueing the petals under a layer of tissue paper,
and then cutting out heart shapes to stitch onto cards.
It's nice to be making again, now the busy season is over.
