It's hydrangea season in the Big Woods. The bouquet on the table is real; the wreath hanging above it is artificial. They look like they came from the same place; both have blue and white flowers. The real white ones are oak leaf hydrangeas. These grow very well in the Big Woods.
We actually have a bush of regular hydrangeas that is blue, and one about five feet away that is pink. I always thought that the color of the blooms had something to do with the acid in the soil. Does anyone know if this is true???
