Hey there friends.
Summer is flying and suddenly it is August!
I find myself wanting to dig my heels into the grass and grab hold of time to slow her down.
Things around Frippery Farmhouse have been crazy busy and I am trying to keep up while still savoring the moments of extraordinary beauty the season brings.
There will be lots of changes coming but for now I just want to bask in lazy summer days.
Back to Hydrangeas.
I have many.
They all bloom at different times.
I would say I cannot choose a favorite but if pressed Limelight just might edge out all the others.
Don't tell Annabelle, or the Lacecaps, or Everlasting Summer.
Words really can't describe the perfection that this hydrangea brings to midsummer.
Can you believe the amount of blooms on theses shrubs?
There are only 3 shrubs, planted 3 years ago!
Limelight definitely puts on a show.
Snow white fades to vintage pink as the blossoms age.
Vintage colors for the late summer garden.
The flowers go from green to white to pink and faded paper ecru as the season progresses.
Cannot get enough of this gorgeousness.
These flowers are totally swoon worthy.
Have you planted hydrangeas in your yard?
What is your favorite summer flower?
Yours in the garden, P.
