Hydrangeas in our Kitchen

We are having another batch of hot hot weather but my hydrangeas don't seem to mind.


I brought some Annabelle hydrangeas into our kitchen this week. 



They look so pretty in a simple GlucksteinHome french bead pitcher I got at a thrift store for $3. 


We only have two hydrangeas, one medium sized in the backyard garden and one smaller bush not yet blooming in the front walkway garden. I need to plant some more! 


Hydrangeas are so pretty as they are growing, a lovely light light green that turns into this pretty creamy white.


I love how easy it is to add an inexpensive dose of pretty to a home with some fresh blooms. Hydrangeas are in the top five of my pretty flowers list. How about you?

Edited to add: I'm home from hospital and feeling better each day.I cut the flowers before I left and set this post to publish later. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!

  2. I love this time of year when all the hydrangeas bloom. Your white variety is so pretty! We have a few varieties and I am trying to learn how to make them bloom better…..I too love to cut them and bring inside! Hope you are enjoying your summer, Elizabeth :)

  3. Hi Elizabeth. Your Annabelle hydrangeas are gorgeous.
    What a lovely jug. That sure was a steal.
    Mine aren't that big yet. I only planted them last season, so next will be better. How are you? Hope your surgery went fine.

  12. I have beautiful Annabells growing in my yard too. But when I cut them for a vase they are wilted within a couple hours.

    What's your trick?
