Soon turns into this.
My hydrangea bush is loaded down with blooms in all stages of development. Some are just emerging, others are in the half-way stage looking partly greenish-ivory - partly blue, while others have reached their peak of blueness. I never cease to get great enjoyment from looking at the blossoms. This particular plant came to my family as a gift at the time of my father's funeral in 1965 and has been growing on the northeast edge of my home since then.
