Blue Blooms-Hydrangea

I want to share a few photos of my garden, now in full bloom with lovely hydrangea. I am hardly a green thumb--lovely orchids last just a few weeks in my house. No amount of watering, talking or cajoling can get them to stick around. An yet, those lovely bright blue, purple and white hydrangea forgive my gardening incompetence and bloom with abundance from late spring through the summer, gracing my garden and home with huge, billowy blossoms. My favorite, the Nikko blue, grows best in fertile, well drained soil. Hardy, they prefer full sun, but need plenty of water. With little work, your garden can become a vision of blue too.
