Loving the Limelight


Hydrangeas are extremely vigorous, long lived shrubs. 


They offer extravagant blooms from summer into fall.


These are my new babies, photographed in the evening.

Happy Labor Day!

  2. The hydrangeas really thrive in the sea air. Even in the evening they look stunning. I actually love all your hydrangeas at the beach cottage.

  4. Don't they show up beautifully in the evening. Hope that you're going to have a chance to see the Blue Moon. It's not looking too likely here.

  8. Your hydrangeas are beautiful, but they're not doing so well in Georgia this year. The blossoms (when there are any) are smaller and more washed out looking than usual. Happy Labor Day to you, too.

  9. your hydrangeas are lovely. My hydrangea bush is loaded I am waiting for it to turn that lovely pink and pick some so it dries so nicely.

  10. I've always loved hydrangeas; my grandma had several large shrubs in her front garden, they were beautiful, and I felt proud when I was old enough to carry the big heavy metal watering can and was given the task to water them.
    One of my grandma's neighbours always asked for a few stalks. She would dry them and spray-paint them golden and silver and use them to make beautiful Christmas decoration.

  12. How pretty. Ours are mostly long gone in our garden, but I see others thriving around the neighborhood. I'm thinking our hydrangeas aren't in the right spot.

    Hope you have a lovely long & relaxing weekend Mary.

  15. Just beautiful, Mary! They are such a nice old-fashioned shrub to have in your dooryard! I love when their blooms take on that rosy blush, as they dry out!

  19. Day by day my hydrangeas are going away until next year but what a gift when they are here. I notice you spend time in Maine. Where? I am half the year in Rockport.

  20. Hydrangeas are so lovely. My blue ones have now turned pink and lavender. Later I will cut them to dry...long lasting pleasure.
