Green with envy

My neighbor's hydrangeas are gorgeous. That's not to say that my salvia or trailing petunias or pansies aren't fantastic, but this time of year there's nothing that takes the place of the first blue (or pink!) blush of a hydrangea bush.

Do you think he'd notice if I snipped a few blossoms for myself..?

So far I've been able to appease my need for hydrangeas by buying a wonderful bouquet at the farmer's market on Saturday.
I love the color contrasts and only hope that my cats stay away - they've been known to pull flowers out of vases just for the fun of it. This bouquet should hold me off from tackling my neighbor's hydrangea bush. For now.
