    1. 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!

    1. They’re just by my kitchen door, so they’re the first things I see (along with my petunias) whenever I go outside. Bright pink is my favourite colour, so they always make me smile and put me in a good mood.

      1. I’ll have to go and sniff my petunias now, but I’m not aware of them whiffing 😉 Are you sure you’re not muddling them up with geraniums that are pretty to look at but rather stinky?

      2. Can’t stand geraniums either (whose scent doesn’t bother me, if I remember correctly!)
        Do keep me posted 😉

      3. Just as well you live too far away to visit me, or I would have to provide you with a gas mask and eye-shades out in my garden, unless I sat you in front of a hydrangea, of course 😉


      4. Silly woman! I still enjoy them; i just don’t have to plant them in my garden!
        And a visit one day is not impossible, you know…😉

    1. 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.
