~ Hortensia ~ In A Vase On Monday ~

In 1994, Creighton and I visited his relatives in Brittany, France. They were lovely and generous with us. I remember well the beautiful hydrangea  Madame Rene Andre kept. The climate there is much like ours in the Pacific Northwest, so these gorgeous perennial shrubs thrive in both locations.

Two Hydrangea macrophylla shrubs fill the corner on the lower level of my home

These are drenched in sunlight as they face east. Not the best light for photos but excellent light for Mopheads!

Hydrangea macrophylla

I love having a big vase of hydrangea with their wonderful blue color on the deck table.
