To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.

Those hydrangeas so beautiful and I love the shade of blue!
Have a wonderful weekend!
I love hydrangeas, but yours are much more beautiful then mine. Beautiful images also.
Your hydrangeas are beautiful - Thanks for sharing them with us.
Enjoy your evening.
Gorgeous...what a beautiful blue!!
These hydrangeas are so rich in color, just gorgeous! Xoxoxo
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.
OH I love them so. I have a blue a pink and some limelights that I planted in different areas around the house. Mine are just baby plants right now though so only one or two blooms at a time. Gorgeous photos Laura! t. xoxoxooxo
Love the blue hydrangeas, one of my favorites. Ours are still blooming with hopefully a few weeks left!
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
Those are sooo pretty! I just cut some of my Annabelle hydrangeas today, hopefully they last :)
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!
P.S. Last friday my copy of Artful Blogging reached now, I it was so great to see it printed...
AWE TOO PRETTY THANK YOU FOR SHARING!
So beautiful!!The hydrangea is my absolute favorite flower!!!
I like the blue ones.....nice an pretty...just like you...love from me...xxx...
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.
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!
Ah, Laura your photos of your blue hydrangeas are soooo Pretty! Smiles, Paula
Beautiful...your weather sounds divine as we are getting up in the high 90's again today.
So pretty, I just love blue hydrangeas! Enjoy that good sleeping weather!
WOW what a beautiful colour!! I have never seen this colour hydrangea..
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.

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.
