Though the recent extreme temps are giving these magnificent flowers a 'challenge', the lace-cap hydrangeas are still such a magnificent sight! The cool blues and purples of the lace-caps in my garden temper the 100F heat and humidity just by their color and bright spot in the shade.
Hydrangeas come in so many varieties of shapes and forms. I purchased a new variety that is supposed to remain pink despite the pH of the soil -- we'll see .... I am waiting for the weather to cool a bit before I subject another plant to such intense weather!
I'm off for my 3-day workshop with Sterling Edwards. I took a workshop from him last November during Art in the Carolinas -- he's a magnificent instructor and I have been looking forward to another workshop from him since then!
Still no rain and another hot, hot, hot day ... Stay cool ...!
