Pink and Blue


Pink and blue blooming side by side 

On my endless Summer Hydrangea, Bloom Struck.

Some blooms are turning brown already and some are just in bud.

I don't know if it is the correct thing to do but I leave 

My brown flowers on, right through the winter.  They look pretty to me

and stay through the winter.


  1. Your hydrangeas are just gorgeous, Nonie!! I love them, too--but my favorites are the Camellias. They bloom early when nothing else is flowering here. I loved lilacs when I grew up in Minnesota--but they don't do well in Virginia, so we have Crepe Myrtle trees here instead. Oh, heck--I just love any flower!! Hugs, Karen

    1. When I lived on the west coast, I loved my Camelia bush, it bloomed many times with snow on it. Now, my hydrogenous start blooming in early spring and never stop until all the leaves are gone and then the brown blooms hang on.

  2. What beautiful flowers! They're so pretty to look at during the Summer!

  3. They are now my favorites. so nice to have summer blooms.

  4. I love your flowers. I some times leave flower heads too...the birds my get a seed or two off some. I saw two wooly worms in the driveway this morning. I know it has been a beastly hot summer...but I do not want to let summer go...not just yet. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. I have tried and tried to grow Hydrangeas, with no luck at all. I don't think they like me :(

  6. Your hydrangeas are beautiful, Nonie. They look Purplish in these pictures, so pretty. They look very nice all in a row with your little statue. Nel has a big bush of Purple hydrangeas in her front yard, and they are drying up too. But in Spring, they were lovely.

    Have a good week ahead.


  7. Connie, I do not know much about hydrangeas, so I think mine grow on luck. I do know others in the same area have problems growing theirs.

  8. Sheri, you are correct, now that I look they really do look more purple then blue. I have had such good luck with mine.
