It probably makes me happier than it should to be able to cut fresh flowers from our yard. (Free!) And, after not being able to find one for the last couple of years, I finally got a limelight hydrangea this Summer. It blooms white and then turns a really pretty shade of “lime” green. I love hydrangeas of any color, but these fit right in with the colors in our house.
I’ve been mixing the blooms with some of the bigger leaves from my other hydrangeas that aren’t showing any signs of blooming this season.
Of course, my limelight is still a baby, but I look forward to the day it looks like this one in my parents’ yard. A perfect backdrop for a nearly perfect photo session with the cousins. . .
