Blue Monday - Hydrangea

Welcome!  We are linked up with Smiling Sally's Blue Monday, once again!

I have been waiting for weeks to show you my hydrangea!  They are so beautiful this year.  They are so blue and some are purpleish and quite frankly, they make me so happy! 

As I took photos this morning, I realized that my camera just doesn't capture the color of these gorgeous flowers.  Here are some photos from Emily's camera...

And these are from my camera...

They are pretty, but don't show the deep blue that they truly are...sigh.

Someone managed this shot last week - I am not sure who, but fairly certain it wasn't my camera that was used! 

I hope you enjoyed seeing the flowers.  Can you believe these were transplanted from a pot of hydrangea I bought about 4 or 5 years ago from Costco?  Every year I would get one or two blooms on them, then this year - tons of flowers.  Such beauty.  A flowering perennial is a gift that keeps on giving!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. I do ❤ blue hydrangeas! I wish I had some, but I don't think they like Florida's climate.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  2. I really love your hydrangeas, the pictures are really great. I purchased a plant this past weekend-hope it likes my yard and sunlight.

  3. I Especially enjoyed them in that amazing vase on the piano at church....thanks!

    They are soooo pretty.
