Guateflora: Hortensias

p3885415173-4-8306159

We continue our close-up look at the most common flowers found in the gardens of Antigua Guatemala with Hortensias the common name (which most people in the US call hydranga) or Hydrangea marophylla its scientific name.

This particular flower (which most people in the US call hydranga) has an additional lesson for me. You can find them in different colors — white, pink, lavender, and blue. But they are all the same variety. What makes the difference is the composition of the soil they are in, specifically how acidic. It’s a good reminder for me that the way I “bloom” is in large part a result of the environment I put myself in. Surround myself with things that nurture and slow me down and I will have a more peaceful mind and soul.
