The hydrangea lives!

Back in the spring, we had a devastating late frost. It was particularly devastating for me - because it nearly killed my beloved hydrangea bush. It sits right by my front door, and every morning its beautiful (chemically induced) blue blooms would greet me. And then the frost. The bush survived, but I resigned myself to the fact that I'd not see any of those mopheads this year.

Yes, some blooms! Tiny, yes, but still ready to burst into life. And this week, here it is:

I love these little fellers!
