  1. I love the amusing picture I have of the rebellious hydrangeas (not to mention the jaunty ‘top-hatted’ gentlemen behind them).

    • I have another hydrangea that has destroyed half its pot but is still managing to sit there, looking very full of itself, with just the back and bottom of the pot. It looks as if it’s the queen of the garden sitting on its throne!

  2. It is no easy task, writing three lines and putting a smile on the face of the reader. No easy task at all, but you do it time and time again. I’m a big fan!

  4. Ha ha. You have fair made me smile with this. Will you be leaving the blue pot as a hat?

  6. Hi your haiku sounded like you are a true gardener. In Minneapolis we have white and a gray blue…but pink I haven’t seen yet.

    • My garden has chalk soil so most of my hydrangeas are pink. The ones in this picture were always this deep pink; however, one that started out blue now has a mix of bluish pink and candy pink flowers. I don’t think I would have any bluish pink ones, but for the fact that I put rusty nails in the pot. I also have a variety that is called white lace, but it’s very moody and not as healthy as the others.
