My Blooming Hydrangeas

I love hydrangeas and have been collecting them for quite a long time. Hydrangeas are popular ornamental plants, grown for their large flower heads, which are excellent in cut arrangements and for drying.

At my Bedford, New York farm, the hydrangea border is located across from my vegetable garden and chicken coops. Some of you may recall - I expanded this area a few years ago when I transplanted a collection of mature mophead hydrangeas from my Lily Pond home in East Hampton. This season, the plants are flourishing and the unimaginably large blue, pink, purple and white blooms are looking so beautiful in the sunlight.
