My snowball bush is quite large this year and heavily laden with beautiful creamy white clusters of hydrangea like blossoms.  They don't offer much of a fragrance but their beauty wins out.  My bush is very large and has a wonderfully wild look to it.  The branches reach up to the sky as well as droop downward, giving it a very romantic and old fashioned appearance.  I trim it yearly but all of the rain we have had caused it to grow excessively.  Unfortunately, after I took this pic one of the branches split down at the base during a downpour the other night.  Happily though it hasn't changed the symmetry of the bush and all is well.  I was sad to see all of those beautiful "snowballs" laying on the ground however.  Enjoy your spring.... it is a season filled with uncertainty as well as promise.
