I'm not really sure why, but my hydrangeas are still blooming, and it's almost mid August. I can't remember when this has ever happened, prior to this year. Could it be, because we have had so much rain this summer? Yes, we have a rain shower almost every day. It might be, just a 10 minute shower, but for the past 45 days, we get this wet stuff falling down on us. I sure wish we could pass it on to all the areas that need it so bad. Now, don't laugh, it just started raining, as I write this post, oh my!!! Rather than let them totally dry out on the bush, I cut them when they start changing color and drying out a bit. I put them in a small amount of water. I let them soak up that water, and then just let them dry in a vintage mason jar or vase. It may take a few weeks, so just hang in there, they will dry. This has worked really well for me in the past, and I hope this year is no different. If you hang them upside down to dry they lose their shape, but this way they dry perfectly! I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU, for all the sweet comments about my feature in the Condo Owner magazine, you gals, are the BEST!!!!! Hope you all, have a wonderful weekend.
