You really captured them so well. I'm looking forward to cooler nights!

Your pictures are beautiful. I am inspired to go out and photograph mine before the colors fade completely. Summer is still in full swing on Cape Cod, but it will start to slow down after this weekend.

Love the blue hydrangeas, one of my favorites. Ours are still blooming with hopefully a few weeks left!

Dear Laura,
Your blue hydrangeas are stunning. We have quite a few white oak leaf hydrangeas that turn to a very pale pink and then green. The blue and pink ones don't grow so well in our garden so, I'm a little envious of your beautiful blooms !!!! I was so sorry to hear about Starla, Laura. We had three cats and was devastated when they went. I always thought that I'd be sad but sad just doesn't come close to how I felt. Am thinking of you all, as I know exactly how you feel. XXXX

Hello dear Laura,
your hydrangeas are so beautiful and I love the shade of dark blue, in our garden we have only pink and white shades...
Hope you had a wonderful evening with your friends. Wishing you a great weekend!

I'm so envious of all the beautiful Hydrangeas fresh from everyone's Gardens... I'm not certain they would grow well in the Desert, but it must be wonderful to grow your own for fresh beautiful bouquets such as this!!! The colors of yours are magnificent!!!

¡ hortensias azules! mis favoritas, ¡que azul tan espectacular tienen las tuyas! esta flor es la tipica de un pueblecito asturiano de la costa occidental Cadavedo, allí las ví por primera vez, fue un amor a primera vista

Your blue hydrangeas are beautiful, Laura. I have blue ones at the farmhouse and always bring back a few vases of them for the city house.

Alice said...

Just lovely!!! Do you have to ammend the soil to get them that color? I'd love to plant these but I hear they take a lot of attention the first year or so, which I don't have time for.

Thanks for sharing, and have a wonderful weekend!

Paula Parrish said...

Ah, Laura your photos of your blue hydrangeas are soooo Pretty! Smiles, Paula

Does it make you sad to see the last of the blooms? I get a bit melancholy at that sight - until I remember that it is a signal that fall is around the corner. That makes me smile again!

Have a wonderful weekend with those you love.

Blessings,

I love blue hydrangeas. I have a pink bush in the yard and the color just doesn't sing to me the way the blue flowers do.

Enjoy your days.
