Hydrangeas for the Winter Season
I thought I'd take a little break from holiday photography and
show you something else today.
Remember all those hydrangeas I gathered and dried
during the autumn season?
Isn't it interesting to see the different colors they've
Although the "blue hydrangea" has always been my favorite
when they are growing in a garden, I think this
dried hydrangea that has turned a lovely
aqua color is my favorite!
Which color do you favor?
Some have brown spots which I think means I probably didn't
pick them at the right time, but I saved them anyway as I think
they add a nice winter feeling to the mix.
This wooden basket holds them all nicely,
as long as I keep them where little Lucy can't get to them...
Lucy is so fascinated with them for some reason...
I don't want her to get sick if she eats one.
So, the dried hydrangea...
I think it will become a winter staple for me each year.
A lovely reminder of a warm, summer day in the midst
of a dark and chilly winter.
Have a terrific weekend!
I had fun chatting with you the other day.
Till next time.
This year I have a creamy white, with touches of green, and a burgundy reddish colored blooms saved.
Yours are very beautiful, I love the mauve.
Gorgeous colors, all of them!
I had to chuckle as our dining table right now is filled to overflowing with jars of drying hydrangea blooms. I simply love them! I put them throughout the house for the winter months. Picking them is such a finicky skill. Even after many years, I don't have it down exactly.
Have a beautiful week!
