Hydrangea Happy

Four summers ago, when the girls were born we planted two trees in our garden to commemorate their birth. While we were at the nursery, I also purchased the hydrangea I had been wanting for quite some time. It's blooms were always beautiful but not plentiful enough for me to cut to bring some inside. Finally, there are tons of blooms this year and I have gone a little "Hydrangea Happy!"  I am putting them everywhere...

...The Dining Room

...The Fireplace Mantel

...The Office

...and there are still more than enough left in the garden.

Have a lovely weekend,

Linking to these parties...


  1. Oh the bounty of a happy Hydrangea!
    Last year, our 4 bushes pumped out just a few paltry blossoms; this year, they are covered with bloom!
    I am a happy camper.
    Do you dry them also? All you need do is allow the water in the vase to dry up naturally, and let the blossoms sit ... they'll be good all winter, although the color will fade.


  2. Just stumbled over here from another blog. And I'm so happy I did! You have a lovely blog I shall bookmark!

  3. Oooh, I'd love to sneak in and grab me a bunch! I love your blog. You are extremely creative.

    Have a great one!

  4. Hey...I have the same type of hydrangea bush and this is the first year I have an abundance of hydrangea also! We planted it 4 summers ago when we moved into the house.

  5. I love them too! They make me very happy and they make a room look soooo much prettier...who could ask for more;)!


    Your blog is lovely...I am so happy I stopped by!

  6. Happy Friday! I am stopping by via the linky party.

    Your vingnettes look utterly charming!

  7. I love hydrangeas, mine died, I am very sad about it too. Yours are lovely!!!!

  8. They are so beautiful, I'm seriously envious. Those antique pieces of furniture are lovely, too.

  9. My hydrangea is covered this year after being dismal last year as well. Everywhere I go this year the hydrangeas are just gorgeous. I'm thinking I should pick some of the blossoms that are lying close to the ground. A perfect excuse, don't you think?

  10. You had me at hydrangea.



Thanks for leaving a comment. I read and appreciate every single one.
