Hydrangeas

Hello, Dear Ones! Oh, I wanted to thank those of you who went to check out my travel blog. It's such a wonderful way for me to keep up with our travels - like a diary!
 Okay! I planted a hydrangea bush a few weeks ago and it has lots of blooms on it! White, sort of.
 They've decided to bloom green! Maybe I cut them too soon? Don't know nuttin' about these wonderful blooms except I love them!
The bush is doing well and has lots of blooms on it and I'm going to love this bush for a long time. Makes me so happy.
The green blooms do look pretty in my milk glass, don't you think? We're happy together.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Happy Together

 Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it's only right
To think about the girl you love
And hold her tight, so happy together
If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together
I can't see me loving nobody
But you for all my life
When you're with me, baby
The skies will be blue for all my life
Me and you and you and me
No matter how they tossed the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you and you for me
So happy together
I can't see me loving nobody
But you for all my life
When you're with me, baby
The skies will be blue for all my life
Me and you and you and me
No matter how they tossed the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you and you for me
So happy together
Me and you and you and me
No matter how they tossed the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you and you for me
So happy together
So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We're happy together
So happy together
So happy together
So happy together
So happy together

  1. I love your travel blog and it is fun to document your travels! The Hydrangeas are so pretty. They do change color from green to a bit more white and then sometimes turn pinkish. They are beautiful flowers and some of my favorites. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
    hugs,
    Linda

  6. Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers.......I think these will change color as they get older......did you save the tag that was on the bush?? It should have some info on it. Love that wall!!!

  7. You know me and hydrangeas. I love 'em too! Yours are beautiful. I thought when you showed the plant after you put it in your yard...it looked like an Annabelle Hydrangea - like the ones I had the most of. Those, when new are green...then they fade to white. Now that I see the green hydrangeas, I'm certain it's an Annabelle!! {Websites seldom say that they start green, so I don't know if it's the planting zone that does it or what - but here's a website with all their information. http://www.hydrangeashydrangeas.com/annabelle.html}

    Hugs,

  10. Very pretty. We planted one but I just don't think it likes where we put it. It is a pink color.

  12. Very pretty. I love hydrangeas but they don't grow well in Utah. I can't even find a plant to grow. Yours look so pretty in the milk glass vases. Just as pretty as could be, just like you. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Karie

  13. They are beautiful Shelia, Love the shade of green and they do look gorgeous in your milk glass.
    My hydrangea bush is huge but no blooms yet at all. Maybe we had to much rain this spring. Thanks for joining in my giveaway. Good Luck. Have a nice weekend. Hugs and Blessings, cm

  14. I love hydrangea's too Shelia, they always remind me of "It's a Wonderful Life" when Mary has to hide in them, and they lined the sidewalks. They are beautiful aren't they!/

  16. How beautiful--the green hydrangeas are so pretty in the milk glass vases. And you know how much I love your red transferware! I had one bloom on one hydrangea bush this year. I asked someone at the local garden center, and they seem to think it was the Polar Blast. If only I had mulched those bushes. I'm going to check your travel blog. Happy Saturday to you, my dear.

  17. I love hydrangeas! I think i read if you pour pickle juice on the roots ....the blooms.......they will bloom purple? Anyone know if this is true or nonsense??!

  18. That is why I LOVE Hydrangea's! You can pick the when they are at there best color, or when they turn that beautiful green or when they dry and have some fall colors to them. Yours look so pretty!

  19. I know hydrangea's colors are affected by the soil's acidity levels. The green color is gorgeous, especially the way you have them arranged. I like to dry them and have even used the dried blossoms on my Christmas tree!

  20. One of my fave flowers. I can't grow them to save my life though lol.

  21. Shelia,
    Gorgeous blossoms, dear friend!!!
    I know very little about hydrangea.
    I do know the color of the blossoms has something to do with the acidity of your soil!!!
    Those blossoms show elegantly in your milkglass!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  23. Hi Shelia. Your beautiful hydrangeas really are so very pretty. Something to enjoy again. It's nice when they bloom several times in the same year.

    Have to share with you that I toured the Abilene, Kansas Seelye Mansion and thought of you when I saw so many nutcrackers on display throughout the place. They have a huge collection that someone donated and it is christmas all year round! grins and happy times. Christmas in July.

    Anywho, thought you'd get a giggle out of this.
    All the best,
    d

  24. I love the way you've decorated your dining room, Shelia!!! It's so pretty! That mirror is gorgeous, and I love the plates on the wall, the matching lamps, and of course, the hydrangeas. They're just lovely! We're hoping to plant some here in the coming year.

    Thanks for sharing these with us! I hope you're having a good summer, Shelia, and I hope you have a great week!

    Hugs to you,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  25. Your plate wall with the hydrangeas looks beautiful!

  26. Shelia they look beautiful!! They will look great when they dry too!

  27. Your hydrangeas look gorgeous in the white milk glass, Shelia! Mine start out green and then turn white. I like them both, but I usually cut them when they're still green to bring a little life into our house once winter rolls around. Very pretty!

    Thanks so much for visiting me!

  28. Your red transferware plates and platters are amazing!

  29. I love hydrangeas, too. They are one of my favorites. I have blue and those are my absolute favorite, but I'd love to have them in every color! I didn't get any blooms this year because my sweetheart - thinking he was doing the right thing - cut them back at the wrong time of the year. Springtime is a no no for trimming them. He knows now. Yes, he does! They will be trimmed a bit this Fall and they will be gorgeous again in the Spring. And he won't have to hear me sigh every time I pass a hydrangea bush that's loaded with blooms!
