Our Old Hydrangea Bush!
Mosaic made in Flickr Toys.
Just one bush and all these colours on it at the moment!
Spring colours were a delight - Summer bracts were vibrant and now these lovely heads in Autumn. There are lots more on the bush. I hope that these I cut will keep colour as they dry out. The heads on the bush will eventually become crisp and brown and will protect new shoots from frost - to be trimmed off next Spring.
This has been in the garden for 40 to 50 years - it originally came from my mother's garden I think. What a wonderful plant!
