I never thought that Hydrangea was so easy to grow....and that the blooms would be so massive! My brother retired last year and began starting Hydrangeas in pots from cuttings with great fact, he was over-run with plants last spring. I was delighted!
I planted the one he gave me where it would get morning sun and afternoon shade. It produced only one small bloom last year but lots of foliage, which I expected the first year as it was getting settled in. But this year...what a display!

large basketball size blooms ...

These have been through the cycle, green to pure white and now back to I'm hoping that I can dry then. Keeping my fingers crossed :)
I'll be joining in over at "Little Red House" for Mosaic Monday. Come on over......
