Hyadrangea love

Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea

I was reading BHG in the PT's office today and came across this stunner of a hydrangea...

The photo in the magazine was slightly more coral, but man, it's gorgeous.

I wasn't always a hydrangea fan, but this house came with one, and I've since then learned to love them. They (at least here) seem to be easy to grow, they bloom prolifically as long as you snip them regulalry and are a blessing to the lazy flower arranger. One snip, one bloom, one vase and bam, you're done!

It really looks more like a lilac in this picture, now that I come to think of it.

I think I need to buy me one.

I love my hydrangeas. When we move from this house, I'm digging mine up and taking it with me.
