I love flowers and hydrangeas are one of my favorites. While I was walking in my driveway today, I was stopped by the large pink blooms on the hydrangea bushes and just have to share.
I bought the original plant many years ago. It had pink blooms, but after I planted it, it bloomed assorted colors ranging from blue, purple and pink, with some of the individual blooms multicolor due to the soil. It’s not as multicolored this year as in past years. The blooms have always attracted comments from neighbors. The past couple of summers, the hydrangeas did not bloom well due to the cold winters, but I think that the huge spectacular blooms made up for it this year.
I wish a bouquet for you!
I wish each of you a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving and hope you are able to spend it with special people in your life. I wish each of you safe travels and a holiday filled with love, laughter and reminiscences over fond memories!
I want to share my “Thanksgiving Cactus”. Its in full bloom and measures 32″ across. Never mind that I bought it during Christmas 4 years ago, thinking it was a “Christmas Cactus”. But it blooms each year at Thanksgiving and a little research confirmed that it is a Thanksgiving Cactus. I bought this as a small plant in a 4″ pot. It amazes me that not only has it lived, it has thrived and grown and grown each year. Although not a traditional color, there’s definitely nothing wrong with a little pink with our turkey.
