All colours of the rainbow
My ancient hydrangea still produces these large beautifully coloured blooms, year after year, even though half the plant seems to have died recently.
The colours of the petals range from yellow green, through pink and lilac to blue and purple; all at the same time.
The plant was already here when we bought the house, but the poor thing doesn’t get enough sun, so it never grew much.
I’ve seen others in the neighbourhood that grow half way up their house walls and dwarf my little plant.
However, mine lives just outside my front door and every time I pass by I stop.
I look at the lovely rainbow petals.
And I smile.
