The hydrangeas are at their peak. This year they are particularly beautiful having benefitted from a long cold winter.

Hydrangea arborescens ‘Hayes Starburst’ a variation of the native found by Hayes Jackson.
As a result of last weeks garden tour, I have added a pot to the Circle of Friends.
Much better. Someplace for the eye to rest.

And the mysterious “From Penny’s back door” If anyone can ID this I would appreciate it.

‘Snowflake’ is absolutely fantastic! I’ve never seen ‘Hayes Starburst’ before. What interesting blooms!
What a wonderful collection of hydrangeas you have, very inspiring.
You must send 1st H. ‘Snowflake’ pic to Eddie & Kay Aldridge. Dahling, it made me fall off my chair.
Adore the new pot as focal point.
Hmm, will have to snag cuttings next time I’m in your magical garden.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
I absolutlely Love the ‘Snowflake’ Hydrangea quercifolia and the ‘Jogasaki’ Hydrangea macrophylla. I have never seen these before they are beautiful. I have got to get over there and see these.
Gorgeous! I feel better now about that long winter….
Terra cotta and blue, a wonderful inspiration. It is truly a wonderful year for hydrangeas, even if they droop a little in the heat.
I experimented for years to find just the right daylily color to enhance my hydrangeas.
MAGNIFICENT !!!!! A real treat for the soul.
Keep up the good work.
Thank you for your comment on Slim Paley Sandra, AND for putting me on your blog roll!
I have just planted some of these macro-you-know-what hydrangeas in my garden and I am loving them!
They seem to last well when cut and brought into the house too.
And if I’m not too late to put my 2 cents in for the vote on your garden furniture…I say BLACK!!
Ok, it’s official! I am in love with hydrangeas! Especially lacecap hydrangeas! Thank you for sharing your lovely garden.
