Are the dreamiest flowers/plants imaginable to me. Ever since a motorcycle trek to the East Coast, many years ago, and seeing a pergola dripping with wisteria and stopping by a welcome center in Mississippi whose gardens were non-stop blue hydrangeas, I have wanted these in my home garden! Really?? Not possible. I know that there are some northern hybrid varieties that have made growing the hydrangea somewhat possible (with some attention, which-not being a real gardener-I’m not prepared to give!) but, until my DIL gifted me with such a plant a year ago (Mother’s Day) I hadn’t owned one. As we all remember, last year’s summer was sadly lacking in rain. I finally planted the gifted plant in a somewhat shady garden area for that arid season and dug it up last fall to be put under a grow light for the winter. At that point it was mostly twigs struggling for survival. To my amazement, in early March, I spied green, healthy leaves!!!! Yes!!! It had seen fit to fight through and today I have this……. I am a very “happy camper”!!! Now, off to the weekend. I hope yours is a grand one! Until Monday……..don’t forget the drawing (found here)!!! Blessings…….
Note: The Wisteria???? I can forget about that until some miracle hybrid is developed for our less than suitable S.E. MN winters
