the mood ring of perennials (hydrangeas)

Hydrangeas–love them much. These Annabelles look like they were put in the dryer for a 10-minute fluff cycle. So puffy.

Depending on soil acidity levels, hydrangeas can turn shades of blue and purple.

Also pink.

They’re the ultimate perennial mood ring. And thirsty ones.

The hydrangeas in front of my apartment building took a beating last week. Too hot and not enough water. So I grabbed some water bottles to feed the hydrangeas. Took five trips up and down the stairs to my apartment, but I got the job done.
