Hydrangea Foliage(1)I usually boast this hydrangea during summertime for its everlasting multicolored blossoms. However, it had fewer flowers this year only on the south side of the bush that was away from the bitter winter blast. Then this fall its nicely colored foliage stayed there for quite some time until the recent cold snap froze everything. There were even two new flower clusters appeared within the colorful foliage.

Summer 2014 turned out to be rainy and sluggish following the record-breaking harsh winter and cold spring. Then it dried out and warmed up some when September came. Harvest was carried out under mostly favorable weather in October. The first half of November was fairly mild and comfortable without seeing any frost up here.

Though there are only frozen flowers left on the tips of the stalks in the bush now, the memory of fall is still vivid in my mind. So here it is to share with you all.
