Another favorite thing


Hydrangeas are one of my most absolute favorite flowers. There are SO many different kinds... all so beautiful. I found this amazing photo on flickr (taken by "mother nature") at Longwood Gardens (Pennsylvania) in the conservatory. I have never seen hanging baskets with hydrangeas - so beautiful!!!!
I bought some "Endless Summer" hydrangeas last year (they are supposed to bloom on both old and new wood). I am looking forward to see how they weathered the winter.
I have read that waking up to the sight of fresh flowers is good for you - gets you going faster.
What are your favorite flowers??

I'm learning that my favorite flowers are anything that Elizabeth likes. You have great taste in plants and everything. That's a beautiful picture. Maybe this spring you can help me again with my flower gardens:-)
