Show me your hydrangeas

Let's have a hydrangea photos thread. I want to get more of them and could use some inspiration.

All types welcome. Do you have paniculatas planted in perennial borders? Sophisticated lacecaps in shrub borders? Showy mopheads as feature shrubs in your front garden? Post it all. Climbers and unusual types too.
If your hydrangeas aren't flowering yet, photos from previous years are welcome too.
Please include the name of the variety if you know it and roughly the acidity of your soil (where relevant).

    Lovely flowers! Which Hydrangea species & cultivar are they?
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    @Papi Jo  You set me a task there! Have looked through my receipts and have come up with Saxon Red and that particular one "Saxon Macrophylla "Saxon Grafin Cosel".
    Seems to match with what I have googled as well. Was planted out just over a year ago and was a bargain at half price just under £7 at a local garden centre.  :)

    Thanks everyone, keep them coming.

    @Athelas I like quercifolias, wouldn't mind having one for the autumn colour.
    @Tack A nice selection of different types.
    @Fran IOM That's a stunner.
    @Terryann I like the last one.
    @Marlorena Very nice as everything in your garden. 

    My hydrangeas aren't flowering yet. I have one inherited in the front garden, only just starting. I bought three more late last year from Signature Hydrangea, two macraphyllas are in temporary pots, to be planted later this year. Not yet flowering but getting there.
    The third one is paniculata 'Little Spooky' planted in a wrong spot, needs moving.

    Here is the front garden one today, will post again when it is in full bloom.
