Thanks for sharing these olde timers! They are beautiful. I have several (although not lace caps) throughout my gardens. They make nice cut arrangements too.

I love hydrangaes.  I was just thinking that I should plant some on the side of my house.

BILL: Back in April I did a blog about hydrangeas that were in my cousin DJ's property and about the acidity of the soil and aluminum. There are so many species and a variety of lovely colors. I am partial to the blues.

Hydrangeas are my very favorite.......sentimental ro me because my grandmother had tons of them.  She didn't have these lacecaps, but she would have loved them too.

JUNE: Growing vegetables is a good thing in this economy. Imagine the money you are saving from have your own home garden. and the produce home grown always taste better and so fresh.

SUSAN: The rust from the nails must create the acidic soil for the hydrangeas to bloom in blue. It is all about the composition of the soil.

ROBERT:I am glad you came by to view the photos of my hydrangeas that were taken this past July at Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard. I love capturing moments of beauty that are all around us. When ever you want to relax by looking at photos, please return to my blog, since I will not disappoint you with my interesting images of RI and MA.

Hi Kathleen, beautiful flowers.  I love the color.  I don't think I've ever heard of lace cap hydrangeas before.  Learn something new every day.

LIZ: I am glad you found this blog that was written this past July when I went on a day trip to Oak Bluffs to celebrate my Aunt Hilda's 91st birthday. Our  family always loved vacationing there. These Lacecap hydrangeas are gorgeous. I had not seen this variety before I did some research to get the match from the photos I took that day.
