Why hello there beautiful blue hydrangea. Thank you for making an appearance in my yard each summer. I adore you more than any other flower. Okay, maybe it’s a tie with peonies, but I really do love you.
This year you will go in a bucket with me to the beach. You will put a smile on the faces of my sisters and momma as you sit in their rooms on the shore.
You will also decorate my table for the Fourth of July. I hope you don’t think you are above being paired with red and white carnations. I’m pretty sure you’ll make a stunning patriotic trio.
You will be in the guest room when the in-laws arrive in a few weeks to welcome them to our home. Your statement will be, “The East Coast Rocks When It Comes To Growing Hydrangeas!”
And you will be poking through the railing of my porch every day, reminding me to cut you and enjoy you in my kitchen.
You really are electric, blue hyrdrangeas. Boogy, Woogy, Woo.
