I never quite had time to
appreciate the Hydrangea
that grew in my garden
when we lived in
South Carolina. Having
small children under foot,
my mind's focus was on more
Hydrangea required little to no care.
The Carolina summer sun, mid-day, was
brutal, causing the plant's branches to collapse.
Appearing exhausted, the Hydrangea bush
would lie sprawled out over the ground,
until the sun set in late afternoon.
Come morning, each stem stood
fully upright, as if
given some great curing elixir
during the night.
I've not had much luck with growing
the Hydrangea in the Florida soil. Long ago I
became content in buying these
fluffy balls of floral beauty. Today
the grocer offered a special price
for two glorious stems of Hydrangea, and
I brought them home to our cottage.
Needless to say....I'm pleased.
Have a sweet ole' day! Dee Dee
