A Garden in Blue

Memories of my mother’s garden

When my mother died, back in 2005, I asked the young couple who bought her house if I could take a cutting from the beautiful blue hydrangea in her backyard garden, and they graciously agreed. From that one cutting, I now have the most gorgeous plant, in a place of honor in my garden. I’m not a good enough photographer to capture its true glory (besides, it’s huge) but this photo may give you a hint. It’s truly spectacular.
