Hydrangeas in a French jug.

Hydrangeas are a popular ornamental plant with up to 75 species,  by far the majority coming from Eastern Asia - China, Japan, and Korea. This is a hydrangea macrophylla  and has large mophead flower clusters. The jug is  provincial French, circa 1820. 
This is a painting by Tessa Bennett.
