blue hydrangeas lighten things up a bit

DSC_0054 DSC_0060 DSC_0057

these came from just one of my hydrangeas. I have about 10 more hydrangea that haven’t bloomed yet because they are in shade. I am looking forward to having  these throughout my house for a month or more. life seems a little easier with blue flowers in soda bottles throughout my house.

    I love the contrasting colours – the blue/green works so well in the clear soda bottles 🙂

  6. The hydrangeas in my Scottish garden are only just on the cusp of flowering. I like your idea of displaying them in a line of soda bottles.

      They do block the view of my children at dinner :). I think blue flowers seem so different then most flowers, a bit playful. The soda bottles added to that feeling. Thank you. ~amy

      I was thinking that those bottles would make great vases for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah this August…Of course, Sophie doesn’t like them. Oh,well. If I said i hated them, she would have claimed a great love for them. I love 13 yr old girls….grrrrr. 🙂 ~amy

      You better get digging, Dale! This bush must be very old. I’ve planted 15 last year & the year before & none flower like the one that gave me all those blue blossoms. Happy shopping! ~amy
