I Love Hydrangeas!
My favorite flowers are those from a hydrangea bush. Each little flower is so beautiful and I love the way you can dry them out and keep them in a pretty container.
I don't even remember how I got this plant. It was either from a small pot or a stem given to me by a sweet lady on my mobile meal route. Regardless, I've had this plant for years and it has never grown too much. I planted it on my front walk two or three years ago and it has never bloomed. In fact, it has barely grown at all.
This year I re-mulched the area and this baby started to grow like crazy. It's huge and started to bloom. Finally! I have blooms! And what a wonderful surprise to see that the blooms are pink. It is covered and I relish in the beauty of these tiny flowers every day. My youngest knows it's a "hands off" plant. Otherwise she would be picking at it like crazy.
Isn't it funny how a plant can bring such excitement? I could take a million photos of all the beauty. I read about how easy it is supposed to be to propagate a hydrangea. For Mother's Day, my girls and my amazing husband got me two more huge hydrangea bushes and my dad gave me some stuff to help it take root. I would love to cover the top of my back hill with hydrangeas. I'll let you know how it goes, lol. If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave me a comment.
Enjoy the beauty in your day!
