This lovely hydrangea has graced us with blooms for several years, but they’ve always been white or green. We added rusty nails to the soil in hopes of turning them blue, but it never worked. This year, the blooms have a surprise pink petaled bit and we love it!
Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was the hydrangea’s new trick! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!

I thought you could change their colour easily, but what do I know?
“You would think that white hydrangeas (including Pee Gee and Oakleaf), being like a blank canvas, would be easy to turn blue. Not so and don’t bother trying. They’re unaffected by soil pH. Many white hydrangeas don’t change color but they might turn greenish as the flowers age.”
So, getting that pink flush is a feather in your cap!

Wow that’s cool to know! I’d always thought changing the color was easy and figured I was failing to accomplish it 🤷♀️
