My Hydrangea survived and is slowly coming back... despite an attempt by a landscaper's assistant to kill it off (accidental, of course) by cutting it to the ground a couple of years ago. I've had this bush for over 30 years so it was quite upsetting to discover it cut down to within two inches of the ground after a winter cleanup of the garden. (The blue Hydrangea wet with rain is another image that will be in my gallery show in February, 2010... view all the images as a slide show if you have a couple of minutes to spare.)
Finally, some snow!
