Jake's Nana gave me a rooted hydrangea from her yard when we moved into our house a little over 5 years ago. It was less than 18 inches tall. I love especially love the blue hydrangeas. Wanting to make sure mine turned blue...I read to put tin foil in the soil...and it worked!!! This is by far the prettiest it has bloomed! And just think...my neighbor Karen...gets to look at it from her bathroom...I wish I could see it from inside our house...there are no windows on that side.
And this is the pride in a Southern Girl's Summer Kitchen!
