THE LAST BLUES OF SUMMER

I couldn't resist cutting the last of my beautiful hydrangea. I wanted to enjoy their beauty inside. Don't you just love all the different shades of blue from just one shrub?

I hope they last at least a few days in the vase. They are so beautiful.

Have a great day.

they are gorgeous, I planted a couple of bushes this year...oh, I hope they grow to look like yours!

Rebecca said...

OK...now I'm totally jealous and coveting your blooms. Mine are dead and gone and when I DID try and dry my flowers they shriveled up and dieded even fast! BAH!

I'll just have to look at yours!

Beautiful Cathy! I've always wanted them in my garden. Maybe next season.

Beautiful blooms and the neat thing is they'll dry just like that in the water. I love the bedside table vignette.

Hydrangeas are some of my favorites. They always remind me of my grandmother. Your blooms are beautiful. Ours all but died this year. Not sure what happened.

Your hydrangeas are such a vibrant blue.
Love them

They are so pretty Cathy. I have the Endless Summers by the pool and then a really old bush in the bird house natural area. They all bloomed profusely this year, much to my delight, but the heat turned them ugly....I was so disappointed. Hoping I will be able to pick a few when the weather turns. Hope you have a super great week. ~~ Lynn

Hello Cathy,
Nice to meet you. Hydrangeas dry very well and stand pretty in the winter in a vase. I have some in my garden and did that every year.

My Hydrangeas bloomed so beautifully this summer. They are one of my favorite flowers. I only wish that I would have got to enjoy them more like you did.
