Hooked on Hydrangeas

Late summer hydrangea blooms are already drying. Brilliant apple green
Filling milk glass mixer bowls on a white linen cloth.
Refreshing color.
Soft pink and sepia in ivory vases on the desk.
A mop head in a lab beaker on the mantle.
Summer's end is near, but autumn is right behind.
What are you hooked on?

Have a refreshing Friday, P.
Pin It!

Of course I love your hydrangeas, but your choice of containers is so aesthetic. The glass beaker and bottles are great!

Would love to dry my hydrangeas BUT you see I have this cat, Bailey is his name & he thinks if it is green or once was it is his job to eat it. Then if he does he immediately "horks" it back up....
After a few times of this it ain't worth it!!

These are beautiful! Hydrangeas are my favorite flower and I carried a bouquet of them when I got married!

You have displayed them beautifully! It is truly art!

Pam, those are gorgeous, but so were your shrubs! You are so lucky to have such an abundance of you have any idea how much money you are saving by growing your own? TONS!!! Try buying the dried ones at a florist...oh mylanta!

how beautiful! I only have one hydrangea, and it didn't fare too well this summer :-( Hopefully next year it will perk back up.

I just love the beakers with one bloom - how lovely and "special" each one looks!

Take care, Laura

OMG I would love to have your hydrangeas! They are gorgeous and will still be beautiful when they are dry. Please enjoy your time away from blogging.

I adore hydrangeas! I've been buying them all summer long at the farmers market. Gorgeous! I'm going to plant my own in the fall (which I read is the best time to plant them.)
