For so long I disliked hydrangeas. I thought of them as old-fashioned flowers for old ladies. Now I guess I am an old lady because I love hydrangeas. I really should cut more blooms and take them in the house. Even as they fade they are beautiful.
This year our neighbor decided to pull out a huge old bush. She gave it to us! We divided it and now have four more plants. They didn't bloom this year but we expect to have a lot next year. We added a soil amendment to make them blue, though I also love the pink ones.
