When I came across this arrangement of roses....

It was a combination of the "just-the-right-color-pink" accompanied by the improvised mercury glass vase that almost prompted me to re-think my choice of favorite flower.

Undeniably the rose holds its praiseworthy place in my top five but it's the hydrangea that captures top honors....most especially what I wistfully refer to as the "Cape Cod Blue" hydrangea. They're picture perfect against the backdrop of a shingled cape house - weathered and gray- boasting cottage white shutters, a seashell laden driveway and a plush green lawn. Toss in a white picket fence with an arched garden gate and I'd say "heaven on earth".
