Hydrangea Blues

Paul always manages to write such interesting posts when he blogs, but with my flowers I struggle to think of anything to write, I'm just getting over a nasty bout of the flu at the moment which probably won't help my blog writing.
I especially like blue hydrangeas and have been trying without luck to find a nice pastel blue bush for my garden, the problem is you really have to see them in flower to know exactly what you're getting as they're very variable. The other thing to think of when you're growing hydrangeas is the soil, acid soils help gives a blue coloured flower, while more base soils will give pink, a side dressing of Aluminium sulphate will help keep the flowers blue.
In the meantime I'll have to keep appropriating flowers on my travels :-)

Lovely and welcome back from the sick bed, Jill!:-)
My mother keeps her Hydrangea a pretty blue by simply pouring tea and the tea leaves onto it, its easy for her as its below her kitchen window!
