I love hydrangeas. They remind me of all of the beautiful ones we saw on our honeymoon in Nantucket - almost 8 years ago! This is the first summer of the 3 we have been in this house that we have successfully managed to get our hydrangeas to grow and flourish (and not get eaten by deer).
This one was in the backyard when we bought the house. Brian accidentally mowed over it the first year trying to clear out brush. The next year the deer ate it, so no flowers. This year it is a vibrant purpley-pink brightening up the corner of my shade garden.
This is one we bought this spring. It is a lovely pink - Merritt's Pink I believe. It has been flowering quite prolifically.
And the more traditional Nikko blue hydrangea. How can anyone resist the beauty of these flowers?
