Starting to Bloom....


I hope you all had a nice weekend.

We had a great time in Nantucket.

I fell in love with their gorgeous hydrangeas.

They are so pretty and spectacular.

I am hoping our hydrangeas will bloom like these someday.

We planted hydrangeas a couple of years ago


this is the second year they have bloomed.

I started keeping the left over coffee grounds and adding them to the soil.

I'm not sure if that made a difference but they started to bloom.

I would love to cut some but fearful they won't grow back next year.

Anyone have any tips as to cutting them?

Here are some pictures.

Love taking pictures of our flowers at night.

They stand up so tall....

There is not much shade during the day in front of our house.

They don't seem to do so well in the hot sun.

But I love looking out the window from the dining room and being able to see the tops of the hydrangeas.

They are starting to turn from white to a very light pale blue.

Here are some other flowers that I love......

Pink Coneheads....

Daisy flowers...

Happy Monday!

Take care,
