It’s September. The kids have gone back to school. The sun has disappeared behind a cloud. I’m fearful summer is over. To perk my house and me up, I bought some beautiful white Dutch hydrangeas. Big blooms equals big impact, and a bit of flower power lifts my dining table and my mood.
The charming florist informed me hydrangeas are high maintenance. We have that in common. Their stalks need trimming every day or two, and if they do crumple into tissue softness, you can submerge the heads over night in cold water to revive them. Remeber: all the best things require a little bit of TLC.
My white Dutch hydrangeas cost £4.50 per stem from Flowers! Flowers! (Seasonal availability only). Link here.
