Hydrangea



Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. It is still cool here in Iowa but it is warmer than yesterday. This is one of my Hydrangea bushes about 2 weeks ago, it is currently in full beautiful wonderfully pink bloom (pics later). I have had this bush for a few years, it did not bloom so I moved it two years ago, it finally decided to bloom, maybe me telling it that the compost heap was its next stop had something to do the blooms :). I love hydrangeas and have quite a few of them, I planted them all together because of their water requirements, much easier to water when they are all hanging out together.

Gorgeous shot of your hydrangea.

One of my favourite plants. There's a certain luxuriousness to those fluffy blooms :)

They are one of my favorite shrubs. Do you dry some of the blooms for winter? I always have to dry a few.
