{hydrangea, etc.}

Hydrangeas are by far my favorite summer bloom, so I am very happy they are back in full force in my flower beds this year, as last year did not bloom at all!  Anyone else have this issue with 'endless summer' hydrangea plants?  Also, anyone have experience adjusting the soil acidity to create a different color of hydrangea?  If so, I'd love advice as next year I'd like to try this -- and go for a bright blue hue! 
Here are some shots of my very pink hydrangeas, along with a few other garden lovelies...
