My Hydrangea's have been putting on a magical show of beauty this year.

  1. I adore hydrangea. As soon as we are ready to plant, I will fill my garden with them!

  2. Those are really cool! I read that the colours you get depend on the type of soil/ acidity in the soil so you are lucky to get all those shades! The ones at my parents place were mostly all blue because they had clay soil. I think they are also the ones where if you put food dye in the water when you put some in a vase they change colour? I might be wrong there.

    1. The colour is suppose to be linked to the soil type and the acidity. I really don't know what has happened this year with ours. They've always been pink before but this year they've changed to blue/purple and there are even both blue and pink on one plant. I've never seen that before. Yet they've been really pretty so what ever it is, I hope it happens again next year.
