Blue Hydrangeas From My Garden

Posted on | July 14, 2011 | 18 Comments

Blue hydrangeas cut from my garden after a torrential rainstorm. Their buds rain soaked brushed the ground. Seven blossoms pruned and layered into a white ceramic bowl to be placed at my bedside.

    They will forever remind me of our wedding in Newport, RI. Hydrangeas are a sweet slice of heaven – your garden must be sublime. xoxo michele

    Ummmm…excuse me!?! You put me to shame! You’re such a good photographer! And I love the patina-ed wall behind. Perfect!

    Agree totally with Michael Penney. Your walls are the perfect backdrop for the photos. Very John-Derian-Provincetown-house-ish.

    I think it’s time to do some paintings from your garden, the hydrangea are so blue, it seems to make everything around it blue, and yes I agree about the squash. a painting would be great for a kitchen, they look like little soldiers

    I can’t believe your hydrangea are already with flowers! I think there is a month of différence between New-England and Québec.

    My hygrangés are just a leafy mess right now. Not even a tiny bud!!

    How beautiful! They are so true blue.

    We had the same storm pummeled hydrangea situation last week in New York, so I pruned the bush and had more flowers than I knew what to do with. Tried to give some away, but the neighbors weren’t home.
