This Hydrangea plant was given to me by my artist friend, Lindsy one or two years ago. It was only a small plant and it stayed and grew in my backyard, sprouting healthy leaves and growing taller and multiplying in contentment. I did not see any flowers all those months I was watching it and the only thing I ever did was to water it occasionally, pluck off the yellow leaves and trim it to prevent it from growing out of control in the flower bed. Then over the weekend I noticed the flowers! So here's to you Lindsy for your gift and I am now able to share it with others and make their day a lovely one too.
