Note Card Party - Hydrangea

Happy Summer!

I am celebrating today by joining Vee for her monthly Note Card Party!  It is always so much fun!  If you haven't joined us before, you really should this time!

 
A Haven for Vee 
 
 
I have been loving my hydrangea this year so this post is all about their beauty....
 
I am getting a variety of blossoms on my hydrangea this year....I love it.  With a little bit of work, wouldn't this be a stunning note card?
 If I were making this into a card, I would do a lot of cropping to this one....

 One of the best things about growing flowers is that you can cut them and bring their beauty indoors - these are in my windowless bathroom - 

These are on my piano....

I took all these photos with my iphone - can't seem to find my real camera these days.

My favorite is the first photo....

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my hydrangea obsession with you!

  3. If I had a hydrangea, I'd have an obsession, too. They are such a beautiful flowering bush. I always like fresh flowers in a bathroom, too. It's a great way to add the outdoors. (It is perfectly okay to doctor your photos, Deanna. So go ahead and crop them, enhance them, whatever them. They don't have to have been seen in their original format. For example, some of my photos first made an appearance in a mosaic.)

  11. I love hydrangeas! Sadly, mine croaked in the sweltering heat we had last summer here in Texas. So I'll just enjoy yours!

  14. Your hydrangeas are beautiful!

    My hydrangea plant also exploded with flowers this year! I wonder if it is becasue we had a very rainy spring?

  15. Our hydrangeas are enjoying a banner year, too! It's so beautiful how there will be different colors of blooms on the same plant.
    And then they are so easy to dry!

  16. These are all beautiful photos for notecards! I planted a hydrangea last year and the poor thing is only about a foot and a half tall this year and no blooms. I hope it makes it! Happy Summer to you!

  19. Oh, I love hydrangeas too! We have planted several in the past few years, so they are all rather small right now...but I have hopes of large blooming bunches of them in the future. Yours are beautiful!

  21. I just love hydrangeas! We cut some the other day and have them in a vase in the kitchen so we can see they a lot. My favorite is the first picture. They are such a pretty color.

  22. Deanna, your hydrangeas are very beautiful!
    I love them - they are one of my favourite flowers.
    For many years, I dried mine out and hung them as decorations across the wide opening from my kitchen to the living room.
    Occasionaly someone would ask why I had "dead flowers" up there, but I though they looked lovely, lol!
    Have a blessed day...Trish xx

  25. They're definitely beauties ~ and equally wonderful on the bush and in the vase.

  26. I love hydrangeas, too - and you have some terrific shots here. I think I like the one in the vase in your "windowless bathroom" best. I like how it is positioned - leaving room for a verse at the top.

    I had great fun putting my first Note Card post up - looking forward to it next month.

    Joy!

  27. Gorgeous hydrangeas and your photos are perfect for the note card party. Isn't it a great idea?

    Our hydrangeas are just barely beginning to bloom - summer weather is slow to come.

  28. Hydrangeas seem to be a favorite flower of many. They are indeed a gorgeous flower. I don't have any, so a note card made of your photos would do!

    Thank you for visiting me!

  29. Hydrangeas...my favorites! I'm waiting (rather impatiently) for mine to bloom. They are more of a July bloomer here in the Pacific Northwest area. Great note card pic's!
