what a superb spot of colour !!!
(may i say that these are not hydrangea but phlox ?!? ;-)

@franz: Thank you, Franz! I've made the change. I had a hard time remembering what they were and when I looked back at the photos taken that day, I didn't take a photo of the tag identifying them. I have a different variety of phlox in my garden and I never would have suspected them to be from the same family.
