My neighbor (who is also my cousin) was taking up his hydrangeas last year and wanted to know if I wanted it to plant in my yard.
"Yes!" I said. I have a snowball bush, which is similar, but I had always wanted a hydrangea.
It really too off this year and grew huge. The flowers are dried now and I went out to trim the bush.
I got an idea! Why not spray paint them red and stick them in my outside flower pots.
So that is what I did. The project turned out great. I think they are very pretty - and Christmassy.
They went from ugly . . .
What do you think?
If you have some dried-up hydrangeas, you might want to give it a try.
