~ Hydrangea Heaven ~ In A Vase On Monday ~

The many hydrangea shrubs in my yard continue to thrive and provide globes in gorgeous hues. These blossoms are all from the same plant, given to me by my neighbor last year and now thriving in a shady garden.

Hydrangea macrophylla

The vase was given to me decades ago by my mother-in-law — a woman who had a fine eye for antiques. There are no identifying marks on this ceramic jug that features a small spout, metal handle and large cork seal.

  1. Beautiful! 🙂
    I looked them up and saw that they do well in partial shade. We’ll have to get some next year. It’s as dry as a bone here now!

    Such delicate colors! I gave mine something to turn the NIkko Blue Blue again and I’ve got dark muddy colors instead. This is heavenly!

    PS. I LOVE your photo of you and your Beagle. Adorable!

      Thank you! Jello (my beagle) loves to sit on laps and get strokes🐾. Regarding the hydrangea, I haven’t fertilized specifically, just let them grow whatever color and they change all season long! The true blue ones are under large evergreens so they get natural acidic mulch year-round.
