“You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.”
Hello sweet friends! I am so glad you are here because I have a treat for you today. As I promised on Monday’s and Tuesday’s blog posts, I am taking you on a mini tour of a hydrangea farm. So many of you said you had never heard of a hydrangea farm, so now you have. I first visited the farm several years ago when I was in charge of decorating for a charity event. When I met the owner, I was made to feel like we had been friends forever, Martha is so warm and hospitable. Since I was in need of hydrangeas last week for two blog posts, I traveled the twenty-five miles to the farm. Grab your tennis shoes and let’s take a walk around the hydrangea farm…well we didn’t exactly walk, Martha and I rode in her golf cart.
The farm has been in the Aldridge family since 1901 and sometime in the 1930’s nursery stock was added. Snowflake hydrangeas were planted in 1971 and other varieties were added between 1990 and 2005.
I immediately fell for these big showy Annabelle blooms…
