This panorama shows a typical sight on Terceira. Quiet surroundings, nice weather, a panorama over the ocean, the pasture land is seperated by miles of stacked lava stone walls and the ubiquitous hydrangea by your side.
There are truly millions and millions of hydrangea blossoming during summer in the Azores. Once imported from Asia as an ornamental flower for gardens, the plant has quickly spread. Nowadays they can be found on every island and on every corner. The flowers still make you happy though. They're not a plague at all!

In the far distance the island of Sao Jorge can be seen.
