A Pink Hydrangea


Lately I have been thinking a lot about what sort of flowers I love the most and decided they are the ones I want to try to grow. It's bulb season and I've never grown anything from a bulb before, but this year I'm hoping to try two of my favourite flowers - freesias and tulips. Another one of my favourite flowers are Hydrangeas. I've never owned one, before today.


I saw some potted Hydrangeas at our grocery store a while back but they sold out before I could grab one.  After comparing prices at our local nursery, I could see why.  They were like a third of the price. I often see plants a lot cheaper at the grocery store so I always keep an eye out now.


So today when I passed the man putting out a fresh batch of Hydrangeas, I grabbed me one. :) 


I wasn't sure about pink or purple and could have stood there all day trying to pick so I decided to be spontaneous and grab the pink. It sure does stand out against all my neutrals. Maybe I'll go back for a purple one too. ;)

    1. I just realised I left a bag of groceries there yesterday so now I have a reason to go back for the other one! ;)

  2. I am a fan of hydrangea. I would like to plant a few at the new house when finished. I would like blue and green. Daffodils are my absolute favorite spring flower.

    1. I love Daffodils too. I'm just researching bulbs and got some Fressias today. I might try the Daffodils next year. :)

  3. I love the pink looks so pretty--I bought a pink one to plant in the yard. I have several in my yard...I love them too. I know you have to add something to the soil to keep the pink ones pink--I have to look into that. Enjoy your pretty flower and yes you should get the purple one too! :)

    1. Hi Sandy. This Hydrangea says to keep in pot inside and then plant out in pot or garden. Our garden soil is dreadful so I tend to stick with pots and I can move them around too. Thanks for the tip on pink ones. I'll have to look it up.
