Looking gorgeous on a sunny, Santa Monica sidewalk this afternoon,
these sweet hydrangeas beckoned me to come closer and admire their fascinating blooms!!
Nothing says "almost summer" quite like blooming hydrangeas, with their tufts of flowers colored in those glorious purple, pink, and blue ombré hues!!
...That's why the hydrangea is today's Friday Flower Pick!!
...And this beautiful white flowering tree gets a very honorable mention=)...
