Hydrangeas, including rare Japanese varieties, are a special feature at Henley Mill.  They offer good autumn viewing as summer comes to a close.

I had forgotten that hydrangeas have small fertile flowers and also more showy ‘flowers’ on each head. It’s easy to see these two sorts of ‘flower’ on lace caps like Tiara and Shojo above.
