Hortensia

I love hydrangeas! absolutely love them! i think they are such a beauty whatever their species, wherever and however you put them. the common ones are the pompoms (no wonder they call it pompoms!) but lately, i've come across quite a number of species.



They have large blooms, some with such flamboyant colours, and brings the garden to life! potted hydrangeas are perfect plant to bring colour and beauty into your home during spring. having them in a room simply brings the outdoors indoors. it'll colour your home and garden, make the room and house feel cozy and bright.

I bought a white mophead hydregea and waiting for it to fully bloom. it's been 3 weeks now and i'm still waiting...



The advantage of these stunning plants is they bloom quite long. it can last quite long but they need pleny of water! i've just realised it, after not caring well for mine. according to the garden centre where i bought them, they are at their best from march to may and some even till autumn. it'll make such a perfect gift for occasions such as mother's day (hint! hint!).

If you're lazy to grow them, well.. you can get the artificial ones. just add them to your pots, baskets, and whatever colour they might be they'll sure bring life!

I love flowers and love to craft with them. they're quite popular so there's no difficulty in finding them anywhere.



Here are my hydrangeas, crafted by moi.



I wish i have a tiny little shop of my own...

wui...cantik nya and sedap nya..!! must tell that you really outperform some of those in M'sia, especially me!! haha. and that you've got good intuition for gardening and cooking. So maybe if you’d ask about what else you might become of in the far away land (beside from being a great mom and wifyy) …sure good thing to bank on those!
