Lacecap hydrangea in our courtyard

The hydrangeas are fantastic this year. When I stopped to admire a cluster of them nestling under a banana tree in San Sebastian last week, a little old man came up and explained to me at length, and in rapid Spanish I could just about understand, that he had made himself responsible for looking after them and that he dug in nails around the plants to provide the iron they need.

We have several varieties in our courtyard but these are the most delicate and prettiest.
