Floraspiration, Week 21: In the Pink with HydrangeasPosted: June 10, 2012
Instead, I have got a mass of big deep pink standards and lighter lilac-ish lacecap blossoms that are a joy to behold. With their lime green stalks, they look ready for a Lilly Pulitzer photo shoot.
These lush shrubs were purchased at a grocery store years ago to grace the tables of a Christening lunch. They sat for several years in their pots amongst my mother’s coastal beds before I rescued and planted them along this northeast facing wall. Now they are thriving despite the constant threat of gluttonous deer, and I have an amazing source of delights for our home and friends.
Who needs blue when you can be in the pink?
