Met Monday



My favorite hydrangea of all. Beautifully white, romantic, old fashioned.




I waited all summer for it. It blooms later than the snowball hydrangeas.




I'm so glad I didn't pick any. The blooms lasted so long on the bush.




And then......




...wait for it....




Now they're Pink!




Just sayin'......

Have a wonderful Monday, metamorphosis or not!

Joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch (betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/) for Met Monday! Make sure to link back to her to learn about A Story of Hope and Healing...

"Colette Gauthier was given a 5-15% chance of survival by her doctor. She had moved into a dismal rental house and was out of hope. Kelee from The Katillac Shack went to Michigan and with the help of Guideposts Magazine where she is their Inspired Home Expert, she created a beautiful makeover to change Colette's "sick" room to a healing space."

Aren't hydrangeas just the best? A rainbow of colors in one plant! I've got a couple pink ones and one blue one, but after seeing your white one, I definitely need to add one of these to my gardens!

That is a beautiful flower. I don't recall ever seeing a hydrangea with such unique properties, but I do especially love the white and romantic phase. I love the story of Collette and Kelee.
