My love for Hydrangeas!

I noticed that I am drawn to Hydrangeas when it comes to adding flowers to my decorating.

 
I love that these can start in spring and go all the way through the fall! I have added some to my late spring and early summer decorating, and I have a hard time once we are in the month of May to keep my Spring décor up.






 Living in coastal Georgia, it feels like the middle of summer already! So with the hot weather I love to add seashells and a touch of the beach to my décor!

 
Some of my door buckets!
 
 

 This is an arrangement I made for my sister! I added the seashells to a jute rope, and hot glued the smaller seashell to add some color.


 
I love how you can do just about anything with these flowers! They are so pretty!

  1. I LOVE hydrangeas! I have one in front of my house, and it's my favorite. It doesn't have as many blooms as I'd like, but the ones that do appear are awesome!

  4. I totally understand the concept of 'late bloomer', having lived in the Pacific Northwest for a decade! My hydrangeas have budded but are about 2 weeks from blooming. Love yours! I'm so glad you actually use them in arrangements. They are pretty on and off the bushes and some people are really reticent to bring them in the house. But if the bushes are full, no one notices the missing blooms :)

  5. I love them too. I have two bushes in my garden now. I am hoping this year they do well and bloom. I only put them in last year. I don't care what colour they decide on I just love them. I am following you back

  14. I too love hydrangeas and would you believe yet to have one to enJOY in my own yard. I'm one of those folks that only allows plants in my yard that were from a friend's piece or it's seed, or a marked down dying plant @ the store. Your decorating is beautiful. Thanks for visiting and joining Joy's Jots Shots & Whatnots. Glad you enJOYed it.
