hydrangeas






I was so hoping that my hydrangeas this year would bloom. Last year I had no luck with my hydrangea plants. But this year, I am pleased to say that they did! Now I don't have one of those HUGE bushes I see in almost everyones yard. Mine I bought at Home Depot, a small plant, so I was hoping for the best. The blossom I got this year is amazing. Beautiful light pink in color and a huge flowering head. Just take a look!








This is from another hydrangea bush I just recently got handed down to me. A little darker in color and still beautiful!


Hydrangeas for me are a beautiful sign of summer!

AAHHH Emily! Hydrangeas are my most favorite. But I stick with roses since it is jut to hot in AZ for hydrangeas. I love them so much that when my husband and I got married our flowers were blue hydrangeas and white roses.
Great pictures!

I love hydrangeas and enjoy them indoors as the bush I planted outdoors suffers in the heat. I have to care for it constantly but my indoor bloom is happy in the a/c. Thanks for sharing the pics, they are beautiful.
