A Word A Week Photograph Challenge – Contrast

Once a week Sue will dip into her old English Oxford dictionary to pick a word on the page that it falls open at.  The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre you like best to describe of what that word means to you.

Travel theme: Statues

Mambo Sculptures. The Sculpture Garden in Kirstenbosch Botanical garden houses a permanent but ever-changing exhibition of African stone sculptures. Each sculpture is a unique original, sculpted by artists in the Shona tradition originating in Zimbabwe. The artists depict spiritual, traditional and contemporary themes as well as topical and social issues in their work.IMG_1418Statues

Floral Friday: Hydrangea

DSC00260

Hydrangeas are popular garden shrubs with delicate heads of flowers in shades of pink, white, purple or blue.

Hydrangeas thrive in a moist, but well-drained soil, in a cool, semi-shady part of the garden. Try to avoid exposed east-facing sites, where cold winds may damage young spring growth, and also avoid dry, sunny spots.

One of the most interesting things of some hydrangeas is the ability of the flowers to change colour. This colour change is due to the soil pH which affects aluminium availability. Those with blue or pink flowers tend to be blue in acid soil conditions (high available aluminium levels), mauve in acid to neutral soil conditions, and pink in alkaline conditions. IMG_1808

White flowers, and also green-flowered cultivars, remain white or green regardless of soil pH.IMG_1807
