Hydrangea Love ♥️


I said to myself..."I think this one will be just perfect to add to my BIG bouquet of Hydrangeas"....
 
 My Hydrangea bush at the cottage...I have 2 smaller ones...not nearly as large..

Last Wednesday...The Flower Lady brought me a whole BOX of Blue Hydrangea... A WHOLE BOX!!!!!!!!!!!

I left 1/2 at home...and took the other 1/2 to the cottage...





I added one of my BIG White Hydrangea in the middle of the bouquet...

 

The petals are a lot smaller than the Blue ones......



This bouquet was for the screened sunporch...

This is another favorite corner of mine...

 


 Can't forget my kitchen porch!

Along with a few beach treasures...beach glass found that day...and my first wee ripe tomato!!


                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



 Hope you are all well and having a great week so far..

Are you still surviving through this heat???

We are headed for another heatwave in the high 30's...humidex into the 40's!! 

Not sure when we will get any relief...the gardens are crying out for rain...

We had a very peculiar weekend...I will fill you in later...

Today is my Nana day...I am sure we will be in the pool!

Have a great day everyone...

Stay cool!!!

                     Cheers!  :o)

  1. Gorgeous hydrangea blooms. Dreadfully hot here and so, so dry. Must conserve water as we are on a well, just doing the veggies and hanging ferns. Grandkids coming Friday for the day.

  2. Your hydrangea are amazing! Mine are half that size. We have had so much rain so maybe that's the reason.

    A peculiar day? That sounds interesting.

  3. They are gorgeous! I love hydrangeas. I have quite a few of these plants growing in my garden. Speaking of gardens, mine, along with many others, is suffering with this heat wave. The plants are struggling, some I'm not sure will even make it. And I did lose a couple. It has been very hot and dry for the longest time. We need rain!

  10. Hydrangeas just make you want to hug them, they're so round a puffy. A whole box of blue hydrangeas is a wonderful gift as you are able to spread them out around your house. I have put the sprinkler on my garden (vegetable) but I have too many perennials to keep them watered. Everything is crunchy. -Jenn

  11. Oh wow, Linda, what a fantastic box of hydrangeas, and how gorgeous they will look in your two houses. High 30s? That I can handle - don't have a choice for much of the year - but into the 40s, is UnFair! Who can do anything in such heat. Hope you get some rain soon for your grass and garden. Happy week, Linda.

  12. Funny even though the gardens are suffering with the heat and no rain in sight our hydrangeas still look gorgeous!
    Love the blue , hoping my blue bush gets bigger and I'll have some to cut and dry.
    Stay cool in the pool....lol

  13. Well aren't those glorious! I have a green thumb. Can make a broom stick grow. But not a hydrangea! Go figure!
    Stay cool. I am in the house with the AC at 73 I wish I know how to convert your temps to ours. I don't know what 40 is here?

  17. Wow, finally some relief from the humidity. You must be back from the cottage as I read in one of your comments above. Hope it's a happy occasion that you've come home early for. :) Going to check out the Oakville Jazz Fest late afternoon. Have a good weekend...
