A GORGEOUS GIFT
About seven years ago I was admiring an enormous hydrangea at a friend's home. Several weeks later the friend stopped by and gave me a cutting from her shrub. That little cutting is now a big beautiful plant that brings me joy every year when it blooms. Of course there is great satisfaction in seeing plants you have placed in your garden grow and bloom, but there is something even more special about a cutting from your friend's garden that takes root in your own garden! It's like having a part of them right there in your garden!
