Pink in the Blue and White Garden

This is one of my favorite places in the Laguna garden. It is a shade garden that is the entry to the lower garden and it originally was only supposed to have blue and white flowers. If I have learned anything from gardening all these years it is to be flexible when things don't go as planned. Obviously I didn't get around to adding acidic materials to the hydrangeas which were originally blue and they have now reverted to a lovely shade of magenta. Our soil and water is on the alkaline side and acid loving plants need special attention. Or you can just let them do whatever they want!
