I've been waiting months for them to bloom -- well, actually going back to last year, almost 1-1/2 years!! I'm not sure if I'll have the heart to cut them and bring them inside once they're in full bloom!! I might have to stick with my fake ones indoors :)

The blooms are really starting to change colour now, from plain to all different shades of blue and purple and pink. Here's my favourite so far:

I also bought some silk hydrangeas from Michael's -- they were on sale, I think 50% off. And you're right, no watering required :)

Lisi, even though you have a gorgeous garden, there's no reason why you shouldn't buy silk hydrangeas for your home :)

Here's a pic of the ones I got at WalMart -- they look just like the real thing, and best of all, I can't kill them!! ;)
