Julien, click on the edit button of your post and there you can add 3 pictures at time . Click on the bottom "save and preview" and on the top of that page will say "continue editing"" so click that if you need to add more pictures... and when finished just click on "publish" button.

Lots of beautiful hydrangeas there

lovely blog Julien. I think there are some beautiful varieties out there.
as Klahnie says go back to the edit your blog button and at the bottom there are 3 other 'buttons' save and preview, add photos and publish. click add photos and you will get a page that shows some of your recent photos. it will say choose from earlier photos or add new. you can add up to 3 at a time but they need to be smaller than 3mb.

Those are beautiful plants. They look fabulous. Paniculatas are my favourite hydrangeas.

They look gorgeous Julien ... thanks for sharing your photos.

Thanks klahanie and seaburngirl I will get some help from my daughter to show me how to do what you have explained to me, thanks again and if all goes to plan there will be a sequel to this blog.

Thanks for posting, Julien. My favourite flowering shrub. I love them and your pics are really nice to see. Look forward to seeing your other hydrangea pics.

Thanks Anget, if you like panicullatas then the rest of the pictures will be fantastic.

Thanks Shirley, I am in the process of working on the sequel.

Thanks Kate, glad you like hydrangeas, when you see the rest of them you will be in hydrangea heaven.

Phew, it’s been so difficult to sort this out, my daughter had followed all the advice given on here and after about an hour we cracked it, to be honest I blame myself for being lazy over the years with all this techno stuff, anyhow a bit about the hydrangeas, this I is a large walled garden in a local park and contains lovey herbaceous borders and many viburnums, I could volunteer in the gardens which I would love to do, but I just have not got the time to do so, hope you all enjoy the new pics, happy gardening everyone.

That's a regular hydrangea feast! I like Paniculatas too,especially that beautiful pale pink one (is it Vanilla fraise?) Maybe when you retire you can volunteer there!

Enjoyed your blog. Very well captured.

Thanks yorklass, I am not sure of the name, the pictures don’t really do the garden justice as it is such a vast area with hundreds of hydrangeas with so many names, I will though try and find the name for you.

Thanks Bathgate, these were taken on my phone, and I think they have turned out better than expected.

Glad you were able to add the extra photos, Julien. What beauties!

14 Nov, 2020

 

Thanks Anget, glad you enjoyed them, summer seems along time ago now, especially with the days getting shorter.

14 Nov, 2020

 

Wow! Julien they are all amazing! What a fantastic collection and I too love the white one. I also love the walled garden too! The last few years I have gone mad with Hydrangeas and if I haven't room in the garden, they go in a pot. It's not a big garden, so can't get any more in and only have 7 now.
Thanks for sharing this with us!

Julien, well done on adding the extra photos ... they are stunning shrubs aren't they?

14 Nov, 2020

 

Thanks Rose, I know what you mean about running out of space I think all us gardeners have this problem, yet we still go to garden centres, see something we like buy it then get home and somehow we find somewhere for it, I am the worlds worst, glad you enjoyed it.

14 Nov, 2020

 

Wow, I wonder if my phone can take pics like this. I've never actually used the camera.

14 Nov, 2020

 

Thanks Shirley, next year I will try and capture some of the hydrangeas that had just finished flowering glad you enjoyed them.

14 Nov, 2020

 

Hello Bathgate, I think you may be ok, my phone is not one of those fancy things, now I have got the hang of it, I will be able to do some more blogs.

14 Nov, 2020

 

Wonderful display of hydrangeas, Julien!!! I was definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of them!....and I was not disappointed!!! A feast for the eyes as Sue has mentioned! I’d be in 7th heaven here. Any decide which is my favourite, but the one is pic 5 is possibly in front!!! Love the deep colour. Thanks for sharing the walled garden pics, you got there!

14 Nov, 2020

 

Thanks Kate, I think next year I will try and get pics of all the lacecap hydrangeas and others that I missed.

15 Nov, 2020

 

thanks Julien I'll play around with the camera and test its capabilities.

15 Nov, 2020

 

So many different types, it must have been wonderful to see them.

16 Nov, 2020

 

Thanks hywell, it was quite spectacular, most were in flower but next time I will go a week or so earlier to try and get some of the ones that were just going over.

16 Nov, 2020

 

That's a good idea :)
