Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. I have always loved them growing up and enjoyed adding them to my decor.  You can imagine my excitement and surprise when I moved here to Cape Cod and quickly learned that practically everyone here has at least one in their landscape. I knew that I had to…
