Daddy Steve: Vanilla or strawberry? Why choose one when you can have both. We have several hydrangea bushes in the yard but our favorite is this one, known as a Vanilla Strawberry.
It's aptly named because the blossoms start out a creamy white and then slowly turn pink. It also has a subtle but lovely scent--very fresh and clean--that Sasha is enjoying here.
It rained off and on all day today, but finally cleared off in the evening. The butterflies and bees also like the hydrangea, so we must be a little careful when sticking our noses in the blossoms.

Sasha: One scoop of each, please.
