Hydrangeas really are a plant which go on giving for months and months. From the first colourful show in early summer through to autumn, I have been enjoying the blooms on my two potted plants.
The flowers have faded and dried slowly over the summer months, but they have held their shape and now although pale in comparison to their original colour, they are still beautiful and very autumnal.
Today I picked a few of them for the house and thought they looked so good, I went back for more.
I am hoping that these will now last for several more months and when the plants in the garden have been pruned and are merely bare sticks, I will still be enjoying the flowers.
