Hydrangea...



I get so excited about the first blooms that I just can't wait to run outside and snip some for the house......




Fresh flowers bring something extra special to a home, don't you think?

































Happy Monday!


My girls are almost out of school for the summer. So the big question becomes.....what to do with them all summer so they are entertained and so Mama doesn't lose her mind?


I'm thinking I can get them to help me plant some more Hydrangea outside. And then we can clip and arrange them together. Sounds like a perfect summer to me.....

I just planted one more hydrangea just because they are so lovely. I spied your conch shell...I have one just like it I just used as a piece in my pool house. Happy Summer.

They look so pretty and I am so jealous(in a good kind of way) because they are my fav flower but it is just to hot here in S. FL. for them to grow ): Good luck with the kiddos, I'm sure you will find some fun things for them, I remember those days!

I am excited for you! Your hydrangea's look so lovely in the white pitcher! We can't grow them where I live so I really am enjoying the hydrangea's through the blogs.

Your hydrangeas are beautiful!! We just planted some small hydrangea bushes this year, and I can't wait until they're big enough to cut blooms from!! :)
Hope you have a great day!
Beth.

Oh they are just gorgeous. We can't grow them here in the desert, so I have to rely on the faux. Love yours. I would plants dozens if I were you. Hugs, Marty

My mother has the beautiful cream color bushes and here is the post I had done, last summer, from her house: http://bit.ly/4gvC5y
We're about to move, but next house, I definitely want to plant some!

Just GORGEOUS. Hydrangeas are my FAVORITE flower! I want several more for my backyard bed. I am trying to propogate one of my established ones. We will see if it works. It is so hot here right now I am having to water mine twice a day or they wilt BIGTIME.

Hope you are enjoying your Monday.♥

We don't have any hydrangeas! Something is definetly wrong with this picture!! I think a trip to the nursery is in our future.

Glad your birthday was so wonderful!
