Look what’s blooming in my garden.
I adore hydrangeas!
Their big, happy, mopheads never fail to bring a smile to my face so I am thrilled that these beauties survived being transplanted last fall. I received them as a gift last year for Mother’s Day lush and full of blooms.
I hesitated putting them in the ground because I haven’t had much success in keeping them happy and healthy. My husband tucked them into our camellia, azalea garden and they seem to be thriving.
Our California clay soil lacks the acid to turn them that gorgeous blue but I certainly won’t complain about this scrumptious pink color. To me they are one of the quintessential flowers of a cottage garden.
I am so smitten!
