I'm In Love With My Hydrangeas

I just LOVE this time of year on the coast when my HYDRANGEAS start blooming! I have two large bushes and one small one in my backyard...I wish I had more...maybe one day I will. Yesterday I cut a few blooms...got out some vases and jars and here is the outcome!

This little jar came from Ikea...had a cute orange candle in it...I just luv to recycle!
Luv this shade of blue.

$1.00 vase from the Re-store.
A little "COASTAL" touch!

I LOVE hydrangeas too. Mine are just about to bloom. They are the best..they keep so long in a vase and the plant keeps on producing all summer.
Your look great!

Don't know if you saw my picture of a hydrangea in bud or not.

Beautiful! I have featured mine in my last two posts. They are gorgeous this time of year aren't they! Love the tallest vase you have, looks wonderful!

Darlene said...

I LOVE your blue hydrangeas....mine are actually Nikko Blue but my soil is wrong for them to bloom blue. They are still a really pretty pinkish/purplish color. If you go on my favorites on my sidebar Manuela at The Pleasures of Homemaking tells in a link in her post about hydrangeas (and hers are beautiful blue too) how to propogate them. She has beautiful ones and has propogated all of hers after buying the first one. I am trying it on mine right now!!!!!

Cielo Azul Jewelry said...

Just gorgeous!!! I've always wished that I could grow a huge busy of them=0)

Tara@JustDevineStyle said...

I wish I could grow them here. They always remind me of my Grandmother! She had some beautiful bushes in front of her home.

Jane said...

I love hydrangeas too and your blue ones are beautiful! I don't have any hydrangeas in my yard but my parents do. I guess I need to go pay them a visit and see if the flowers are in bloom yet.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Wendy said...

Yours are certainly beautiful!

They are so gorgeous. This is the first year I've planted them, and I don't know why I didn't sooner. Thanks for sharing.

I too love hydrangeas. That blue is totally gorgeous! Thank you for sharing :)

Tammy@ A Doctor in the House said...

My hydrangeas are in bloom too! Aren't they fab? I have them sitting around all over the house too. Nothing like the freshness of the blue color and to think it's free right from our yards. God is good!

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Such a pretty color! Love them, mine have died in the backyard, tyring hard to bring them back to life! Have a great weekend!

Kimberly said...

I definitely love the blue. Just too bad there's not some orange in there too. :) War Eagle!

RainGardener said...

Spectacular!!!

Julie said...

I can't get my hydrangea to bloom. It has never had any flowers on it all! Stopping by from New Friend Friday. I'm a new follower. Hope you stop by! Have a great weekend!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Hydrangia's are one of my favorite flowers and yet I have never tried to raise them. For some reason I always feel I don't have the experience and would lose them..no idea why I feel that way..but..perhaps this year...perhaps...
See the comment above...by Julie??? Well, that is what stops me. Do you feed them something special?? I must read up...and maybe that is why I put it off...but...I REALLY do want some in my yard!
Have a safe weekend!

I have got some that I need to go cut for vases! Following from Friday Follow!

Beth said...

So beautiful!!! Ours aren't blooming yet. I do have one mature hydrangea and about 10 purchased this year and last year so someday I will have many of these beauties, of several varieties. Hydrangeas are a fabulous flower and yours is so pretty. Glad you shared it today!

Tootsie said...

I am seriously jealous!!! I wish I could grow huge blooms as pretty as this!!!
I am just so happy that my hydrangeas have survived the winter!
thanks for linking in this week! see you again soon I hope!

Jan @ bobbypins boardwalk said...

My favorite flower. Gorgeous!

Emily {Frilly Details} said...

So pretty!!! I can't wait for my hydrangeas to bloom.

Sarah said...

I am also in love with your hydrangeas, not to mention, extremely jealous. I've tried and tried to find a nice place in my yard for them, but they hate the Texas heat and start looking ragged about a week after they bloom :( Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting on the master bath. I look forward to your posts, as a new follower.
