SHADY BACKYARD

June 26, 2020

Hydrangeas.

The quintessential summer flower of shady backyards, older neighborhoods – you have to love their blowsy mopheads, the delicate lace caps, and the sturdy lime green Pee Gees. This book is like a walk through a botanical garden devoted to hydrangeas only. Treat yourself to a long look with a glass of iced tea and I promise you will be refreshed.

The clean, simple lines of Simon Pearce’s Weston rectangular vase
are the perfect foil for the round softness of a many-petaled
mophead hydrangea. Equally stunning with tulips, a branch of lilac, or tulip magnolia this is the vase you will reach for again and again.
