Hydrangeas - How I Love Them!

It is hard to believe that I haven't posted since Easter!  Where does the time go?  I guess we've been busier than I thought with life stuff. That is the way it goes sometimes. 

Do you love hydrangeas?  I sure do.  They are one of my very favorite flowers. It takes only one or two to have a really beautiful arrangement and they just scream summer!  They also remind me of my grandmother Effie Ellington who always had beautiful hydrangeas. I found this old photo of one of her hydrangeas from 1967. Not a great photo but you get the idea.
Last year the two hydrangeas at our current home did not produce a single bloom. They had been neglected, along with the rest of the yard, during the two years before we came here. I am happy to report that one of the two produced a plethora of blooms this year. Hopefully, due to my nurturing and prodding. Here are a few photos of hydrangeas everywhere around our house.

I love a house filled with flowers. Don't you?  

Gracefully yours,
