Little Lamb Hydrangea


This morning I clipped a few blossoms from my Little Lamb hydrangea. It's a beautiful hydrangea that grows happily in full sun. The variety comes from Belgium and was named 'Little Lamb' because the grower thought the flower petals looked like little "dancing lambs." How sweet is that?

I have never heard of Little Lamb, but it's gorgeous (and I love the story of how it got it's name!) Landscaping is on next year's agenda, but I plan on LOTS of white hydrangeas! I just love a white garden and white flowers!

I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed looking at your blog tonight! Your renovation is fantastic and very inspiring. I can't believe more folks haven't commented...know you have a big fan in Virginia! I love your style and your house---it's beautiful and clearly a labor of love.

I have to agree w/Sophie. The more I look at it, the more I love it. You have a fresh way of presenting things. Just beautiful. A new fan in California. Janet

I have a little lamb hydrangea that is in full bloom. Your beautiful photo has encouraged me to snip a few blooms for inside.
