Hydrangea Highlight by Great Joy Studio | Jun 20, 2012 | Home Arts | 6 comments Summer is heating up – mid 90s, all week! The Hydrangea bushes love it. Me, not so much.Plans to sketch more of the pretty blossoms is on the schedule. Work to be done from cut subjects in the cool of the studio, naturally. 6 Comments alex colombo on June 20, 2012 at 5:13 pm Nice hydrangea! I wish mine would be that way too 🙂 – Beautiful artwork!

One simple way is to stick a few rusty nails in the ground around the bush. Log in to Reply Elly on June 22, 2012 at 2:39 am Your blooms are lovely! Mine are in a more shady spot and are just beginning to come out. They’re a more mauve color rather than pink. Log in to Reply Elly on June 22, 2012 at 2:40 am …and have a wonderful SUMMER!
