Fall Hydrangeas

Annabelle Hydrangeas are easy to grow and the blooms get to an incredible size.  They start out a beautiful creamy white and as they age they take on a green tinge and then go to brown.   They are easy to use as a dried arrangement by taking some cuttings and put them in a vase with just a teensy of water.   The water will evaporate but the flower head will stay just perfect.

This hydrangea is one I planted last fall.  It stands only about a ft tall.   It is called ‘little lime’.   At the moment the petals are turning the most gorgeous shades of creamy white, green and pink.

This hydrangea is called ‘’Pink Diamond’ and at this time of the year the blooms go a lovely pink colour.  I started another hydrangea this year called ‘Pinky Winky’ and the flowers have the same shade.   I have an ‘Incrediball’ hydrangea at the front of the house and it put on some growth this year and some lovely blooms but it has a ways to go to outdo ‘Annabelle’.   

I am joining Mary’s Mosaic Monday.   Come over an visit us there.   Valerie

I think I like those oakleaf hydrangeas the best...ours did not do well this year. It was too hot in NJ. Yours are very lovely!

They're lovely! This year I have hydrangea flowers for the first time. I see that others have dried theirs, and I'd like to try that - have tried, in fact, with no success. I guess it's time to google the how-to.
Hi Val
I love hydrangeas too and it was nice to see yours.
My 'Little Lime' has grown pretty good this year considering the size it was when purchased.

Hi Valerie. Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment. Your hydrangeas are pretty. I have one huge Annabelle that is more tree than bush. It's just loaded this year again and I always dry some blooms for the winter. I hope you have a great week. Blessings, Pamela

Your hydrangeas are beautiful. Lovely shots!
I love to dry hydrangeas as well. They add a nice green colour to the house in the dead of winter. Your varieties are such soft colours.

Oh those hydrangeas are just gorgeous Valerie! Thanks for the tips about them, too. Have a great week!
Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers! I would love to try to grow some here in Florida! I love that delicate pink! ♥

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
