Hydrangeas

One of my favorite flowers is back in bloom.
They looked like this a few months ago.
Just a hint of things to come.
Filling in a little bit more...
Then they started popping!
I've been cutting them to make bouquets all over the house.
 You may remember them from my summer mantel post.
Or from my post about her promotion to middle school.

 If they get a little wilted, I just trim the stems again and add fresh water. They perk right back up!


Inside or out, they make beautiful, long lasting bouquets.
Do you love hydrangeas too?
Here's how mine looked last year.

How pretty, Heather. I wish my bush would put out a lot of blooms. Nope, only two!

So wonderful! I fell in love with Hydrangeas when I first visited Oregon to meet my new in-laws-to-be many years ago. But they never look as amazing here in Calif as they do in WA and OR! (Don't know where you are.)

Hydrangeas...I'll have to enjoy them vicariously through you. How sumptuous!
