I don't know if it's inevitable that a great love will dwindle over time, or that the sudden surge in hydrangea based Instagram posts has all just proved too much, but *whispers* I think I'm nearly over hydrangeas.

Exbury Gardens has a world-famous collection of rhododendrons and some of them have mahoosive leaves - I used Kitty for leaf ratio purposes, much to her delight (note: sarcasm).
