hydrangeas in bloom...

A simple arrangement. Cut hydrangeas, in mason jars, in a wire basket. Love it!

All over my yard.

They're looking better than ever this year.

Love this Lace Cap variety.

It has purple and blue blossoms on the same bush.

And my newest addition all the way from Hydrangeas Plus in Oregon.
The Limelight.
My new favorite.
I can't even believe I have blooms on this one already. Just planted it before the winter.

Can't wait to dry these!
Hope you're having a great week. It's almost the weekend!
I also have some nice grill recipes to share with you soon (just in case you're getting tired of hot dogs and hamburgers).

I'm just a tad envious looking at all of your beautiful hydrangeas! They're so beautiful! I don't think there's a lovelier flower. Love your little set up in the jars!
Be a sweetie,

CIELO said...

So beautiful! I've always dreamt of having lovely gydrangeas growing all over my garden... I have many roses in my garden but not one single hydrangea bush; they just dont't grow here in this cold weather. Yours are beautiful. Thanks for participating in our "Show Off Your Cottage Monday" and letting us into your lovely garden...

I am so jealous of your beautiful hydrangia! I need to move mine to see if I can get them to grow in another spot. They do not like it where they are. Any tips! Maybe I should add some perilite to lighten the heavy soil.

They are gorgeous! We have a few in our yard. 2 of my neighbors have moved out so I have been "prunning" them so they don't go to waste :) That pound cake below looks so yummy!! Enjoy your day!
