HYDRANGEAS:
AN OLD FASHIONED FAVORITE

Do you notice flowering shrubs now,
with giant blue and pink blooms?
Chances are they're hydrangeas.

Many remember hydrangeas from their childhood.
Today we are falling in love with them all over again.

And the good news is
we can grow hydrangeas our grandmothers
never dreamed of . . .
different shades of reds, whites and blues,
creamy whites, and even multi-colored hues
on the same flower.

They look "at home" in front of the house,
and great borders for the front porch.

  4. Truly beautiful flowers and photos. We got some here to. They are so small. Often we have to take them into the house when the wind blows and gets colder in the air.
    Wish you a nice week.
