Hydrangea in the Backyard

The hydrangea blooms are plentiful this year so I kept some on the patio table. Peeking from behind are
a few of the pillows I sewed for the windsor chairs.

Wave Petunias and ivy on what I am told was an old cheese board(?)
We're getting lots of use out of our little fire bowl.


More hydrangeas in an old Crown mason jar. I love the zinc rings and glass lids with the crowns on them.
Pretty blooms under the screen gazebo. 

I have received lots of kind comments from my last post. I was surprised to hear the hydrangea called green. I always thought of them as white. Many are quite white, but I realize now they have a green undertone. Especially the ones that were not quite open when I cut them (due to impending storm.)

Hoping you can enjoy some time outdoors this weekend!

  4. I have serious hydrangea envy. I wish I had some in my own yard, In fact, I haven't seen any in my area at all. Are they territorial maybe?

    I love all the color in your flowers!

  6. I sure wish I could grow white hydrangeas. No matter what color I plant, when they grow back they are always pink.
