The rain was great! Our grass is green again, except we have some bare spots. The flowers are looking good! Bhubaneswar Flower

Great post, Jodi! I enjoyed reading about the various hydrangeas. I have several but they can be tempermental at times. It's so nice to hear they can handle the sun. Now I understand better why we have blooms on one plant and not on others we pruned at the wrong time! Can't thank you enough!Bhubaneswar Flowers
