1 July : Obsession






I know that it is wrong to love one plant more than another. There should be no favouritism especially when roses, lupins, foxgloves, geraniums and all the other hard-working and admirable plants are flowering their little socks off. But alas, I am undone...I have become obsessed with my Hydrangea 'Annabelle'. Who knew that such fabulousness could come from a small pot of dead branches. I think I might dig up the whole garden and plant hydrangeas next year. It would be spectacular.

  2. Can't see why it's wrong at all. Roses are my favourite.

    1. Yes I know I should love the noble rose. But my heart has been stolen by this blowsy beauty. They are so huge that they make me feel like a Real Gardener.

  3. My favourites change from week to week but hydrangeas aren't amongst them - although I do like your white one.

  7. My father told me a wonderful story about a wedding he attended many years ago where a distinguished but eccentric Professor arrived to give his daughter away with a gigantic hydrangea flower as his button hole.
