  1. Ooooh, albino perhaps. Very strange.

    Do you have hydrangeas there? They can be white, pink, blue or mauve depending on the acidity of the soil. Of course people know that before they buy them. Surely it is not like that with bluebonnets, or they’d be called “take-your-chances-with-the-soil bonnets”.

    Have you taken possession of your extension tubes yet?

  4. Yes, we do have hydrangeas here, I didn’t know that the soil makes the difference in the color.
    I was thinking albinobonnet, too!! We saw maybe 3-4 white ones in that whole big field of bluebonnets.
    No extension tubes yet, but I will have them sometime on Friday!! FINALLY!!

  5. Oh my…it is the famous North Dallas White Hybrid!!! There are only a dozen known examples. They are usually found near the lair of the North Dallas wild, white beagle.

    PS—its a gorgeous flower. Nice find and well captured.

    WOW you captured a rarity. I know VERY little about gardening, but one fact I do know is that the acidity level in the soil is what changes the color of hydrangeas. People add acidity to get that blue color.

  7. very pretty…I’ve never seen white ones either but I did know about the soil acidity and hydrangeas and was thinking along those lines until burstmode explained
