Favorite Things Friday: Hydrangeas

They can come in almost any shade.
They are big, full and glorious when in bloom.
The flowers when cut in a bouquet, can be a dramatic centerpiece.
Hydrangeas are still gorgeous when dried.
I think they are amazing! I love each little flower and then when they are all clustered it makes the big 'puff ball' or 'snow ball' flower.
They can be different shades of color depending on the ph of the soil.

I would love to have a yard full of them, along with so many other flowers, but until then a cut bouquet in a mason jar, truly one of my most favorite things.

Happy Friday everyone!



  1. There are beautiful flowers! I got some this year for the first time and I love them. I never thought about drying them, thanks for sharing that :)

  2. I love them, too. I can't seem to grow them, though.

  3. I'm always impressed in a puffy sort of way when I see them in somebunny's yard. And yes, it is neat how the many little flowers add up to the full flower!

  4. Beautiful flowers, nice photography. Your favorite made me smile. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Your flowers are soo pretty!! :o)

  6. I love hydrangea's too! My limelight this year is about 8ft. tall. I just planted a everblooming pink and my blue ones are starting to bloom. Aren't they fantastic? So glad you entered the giveaway, blessings to you!

  7. Beautiful thank you for sharing...I just moved into my new "home""not new " but new to me last August...I live alone so money is tight and time is even tighter but I do enjoy the many flowers, shrubs that were planted before it was my home but no Hydrangea's ...are they hard to grow and are they hardy? I would think so for I see them a lot ...wonder is it to late to plant now?
