What a year to grow hydrangeas, or so I thought! We had an early spring followed by a chill but the hydrangeas didn't mind,of course. I have five different kinds and all were doing well. I was really busy with family and so didn't pick some to save when I should have. Along came 6 weeks of heat and it was all I could do to keep them watered along with all the other things (potted plants, reservoired tomatoes, a raised vegetable bed, a wildflower area, and a perennial bed)! I felt that all I did was water and fertilize. Having had multiple cervical and lumbar fusions, I have to decide if I can even manage to do part of the above! We have a multi-level lot with many steps and I have a twice operated -on knee! One of my newest white hydrangeas is along a hollow and I feared for my life if I wanted to pick a white one to keep! (I'd forget to ask others when they stopped in.) Along a deck and 7' below it, I was absolutely shocked to see one pink hydrangea blossom that was far larger than any grapefruit and absolutely perfect! I must save THAT one, said I--and guess! It didn't happen--so the heavenly hydrangeas of the summer are stored only in my memory! I was so happy to hear how to dry the blossoms and am sending you a very grateful thank-you! I'll be READY for those heavenly blossoms next year! AMEN.

I hope your body cooperates and allows you to garden more next year.

Best,
