Old Fashioned Hydrangeas

I have memories of my grandparents homes and their flowers that will never fade.  It seems that they all had Dogwoods, Crepe Myrtles, Magnolia, and Pine Trees they all stick out in my mind but the Hydrangea Bushes around the porches, now they were a sight to behold.
I can still see those huge flowers blooming out all over their bushes, Their colors varied so much and were so beautiful. Like big fluffy balls of color.  That is where my love of them began.

Do you like them?


This years blooms.  I have some that are pink and am putting them in pots to try and keep them that color.  

Hope you enjoyed the tour of Hydrangeas. I have lots of pictures of the Irises, daylilies and all that have bloomed this year and will share those too.

Hummingbirds, Bluebirds, and Hydrangeas

Chuck and I enjoy having our coffee in the morning watching the wildlife outdoors through the windows.  We see such beauty everyday.  The Hummingbirds, the Bluebirds, the others that I forget their name birds. The dogs and chickens put on a show too. This is what we saw out of the window not long ago and I thought well the colors are red, white and blue...
