GRATEFUL is inspired by the variations of colour to be found in a single Hydrangea plant. The giant corymbs of pretty petals can vary from blues, greens, pinks, purples and change constantly through the life of the flower heads. In Asia, Hydrangeas represent, gratitude, forgiveness, regret. There is a Japanese myth of an Emperor who, having angered a woman he loved deeply by neglecting her in favour of his work, gifted her with a bunch of blue hydrangeas as a symbol of his deep emotions and gratitude towards her. Myth or not, I've loved these plants since I was a child and would pretend a single flower head was a brides bouquet when playing dress up.
