What a relief! We had rain. Finally. There was thunder and lightning nearby, but the storm seemed to skim to the north of us. Even Ottawa had rain. Finally, at bedtime, Josephine came upstairs and said she heard rain. They are with us for the week. More on Gramma Camp tomorrow!
Hydrangea, common names hydrangea or hortensia, is a genus of over 75 species of flowering plants native to Asia and the Americas. By far the greatest species diversity is in eastern Asia, notably China, Korea, and Japan. Most are shrubs 1–3 m tall, but some are small trees, and others lianas reaching up to 30 m by climbing up trees. They can be either deciduous or evergreen, though the widely cultivated temperate species are all deciduous.
