Hands down, one of my favorite plants. They're just so dang pretty. Which is why I couldn't stop taking pictures of them. Ahem. These are all from only two plants. What? I like them, what can I say?
This first one is in my backyard. My brother-in-law bought it for me as a gift for my housewarming party. In the summer of 2002. Wow, have I really been here that long?
This one was blue when he gave it to me and has been blue every year since.
Until this year, it decided to switch it up - on just one bloom.
I love how the variation of blue on each head is completely different from the others.
The other hydrangea was here when I bought the house.
It's a lace cap, also blue.
It's next to the door in the driveway that leads to the kitchen.
So there ya have it.
I think that means it's officially summer.
