Why I love hydrangeas

I love hydrangeas.... in fact I love quite a lot of flowers and plants that begin with the letter H - hellebores, hostas and hyacinths are all favourites of mine.

I love hydrangeas for their retro charm. It's those big blowsy nonchalent pom poms.... they just do it for me. Who could resist a flower that must surely have inspired this classic 1950s bathing fashion?

Based wreath

....still on the funeral module. Here's a series of photographs from the based wreath I made this week. I really enjoyed doing this piece.
