Everywhere I look and everything I’ve read has indicated that this has been the unofficial “summer of the hydrangea”.
Rarely have so many of us been so enthralled with this blooming beauty…I think it’s because of the hydrangea drought we experienced for the past couple of years. They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone, but I would venture that we didn’t know what we were missing until this summer!
These lacy, limelight hydrangeas are the gift that appears in August. I have two enormous ones in pots on my back patio and the two that flank my arbor gate. I had toyed with climbing roses for the gate, but instead decided to have these hydrangeas hug it instead.
Words don’t adequately describe them….so my photos will hopefully make do! Happy first weekend in August….I hope you’re enjoying these last weeks of summer. Time to savor time in the garden or wherever you love to be!
