I Heart Macro Hydrangea

When we moved in to this house about 2 years ago I thought this Hydrangea was a gonner, it just looked like a bunch of dead sticks coming out of the ground. But I started trimming it and could see there was still life there so tended to it and tried to bring it back to life. Then when I saw these incredible blooms I was hooked, and this year it actually has alot of leaves as well and you can hardly see the branches. Even though my hubby (not a gardener by any stretch) kept telling me to just cut it down, I don't give up on plants easily and in many cases I am happily rewarded.

  3. It is so, so, SO, so pretty! I love hydrangeas and have never been able to grow them. Maybe I needed more patience. :)

  4. I wish my Hydrangea looked like yours! The colors are amazing. It is so rewarding to give a sad plant a little TLC and seeing it bounce back! ~Val

  5. Beautiful hydrangea shots. They are my favorite, said I was going to count how many bushes I had this year, haven't done it yet! Our blooms are pretty much on the way out, just got way too hot and dry even with care. Thanks for sharing yours!
