I am so happy we planted hydrangeas! This is their second summer in our yard, and they are doing really well! We've got two varieties, a peegee hydrangea, with the white puffy heads that are so heavy with blossoms, they are draping magnificently over our picket fence! The other variety is a beautiful purply blue...with some of them going a rather hot-fuschia color depending upon the soil! I was experimenting with changing up my knife technique on this one...and of course studying the way the light falls in my studio window that faces north (seems to be a constant source of delight for me!).
