We have a gorgeous pink hydrangea plant. But over the past winter it had a hard life. It was once filled with lovely blooms, but an unusal winter frost took its toll. The unexpected turn of events was unexpected. Nevertheless, it was overwhelming for the poor hydrangea to spend several days out in the unusually frigid weather for Southern California. We had no plans for the temperature falling into freezing digits. Not only did the bright pink blooms fall off, but all the deep green leaves did too. We thought all might be lost. But we couldn’t give up hope. We moved the poor dried up and seemingly deceased hydrangea to the front porch.
And then … new beginnings!
Last year our sweet little hydrangea produced this loverliness. We’re more than a wee bit excited for new blooms to come!
