I adore hydrangeas. This flower is the perfect blend of color (soothing, yet vibrant and NOT too pastel) and it has fantastic shape and structure. This is also a great flower to use for a wedding. It looks lovely in a vase all by itself.

I know, I love this look. Have you pick your flowers yet? How was your bachelorette party? Hope you had fun! I'm sure you did:)

I haven't found a final look for the flowers. I'm thinking I'll DIY it with Stargazers and Roses but, I have to put it together to see how it'll fare outdoors on the beach for an hour and put some trial centerpieces together! My bach party was a BLAST! Thanks so much for asking, when is yours? What are you guys gonna do?

Feel Like A Change? Change the Color!
When I first saw Blue Hydrangeas at Home Depot, I was immediately impressed with the large colorful flowers.  I had a wall on the side of my house that I wanted to cover with some big splashes of color.  These bushes grow fairly large, so I only needed to buy two to cover the area I needed covered.  Instead of buying the more mature plants from Home Depot, I bought smaller plants from the Farmer's Market.      After the first year of growing, my small …

I love all perennials...in my garden, I have some hydrangea mophead and nikko blue; one from home depot or big box are NOT organic and always die. support your local organic nursery. I plant a lot of milkweed to save butterflies as well as a lot of butterfly bush for hummingbirds and bees and, in my area, lupine, for a local butterfly whose historic habitat in pine barrens type ecosystem is threatened by man.
