Hydrangea

hy·dran·gea (hī drān′jə, -dran′-; - ə)
noun

any of a genus (Hydrangea) of shrubs or vines of the saxifrage family, with opposite leaves and large, showy clusters of white, blue, or pink flowers

And I love them. I cut these from Susan's garden. Something as simple as fresh flowers really do brighten your day. :)

Hydrangeas and peonies are my favorite flowers.

Hydrangeas remind me of Martha's Vineyard, one of my favorite vacation spots.

Do you have a balcony? I miss mine. My new condo doesn't have a balcony.
