I just picked my last batch of hydrangeas for the season. I guess I'll just have to admire the photos of flowers until spring! I just love roses and hydrangeas and just can't get enough. I can't decide if I love the soft muted colors of the delicate pink and blush roses or the vibrant pinks, yellows and purples. As far as hydrangeas go... acid or alkali soil? Do I want pink or blue blooms? Actually, either color works for me as long as they are full of beautiful, intense color.
I just love the look of an English garden with the juxtaposition of the formal and casual. It makes for a more interesting space by mixing and the masculine stone, slate and gravel with the feminine flowers like roses, hydrangeas, sweet pea, snap dragon and foxglove. It' s so beautiful to see the delicate roses next to the stone walls and garden ornaments. I love the slate and gravel walkways along with the trellises, arbors and pergolas. Flower boxes make a home come to life with color splashed on it.
Hmmm..... it's all so great, I can't decide what I like more!
