Hydrangea Summer (And Meeting Up With A Blog Friend)


The hydrangea are knocking my socks off this summer!  So amazing!  My Limelight hydrangea is going to be full of flowers, too!  Its a great year for my garden!






Its interesting to me that I took all of these photos within minutes of each other but based on the angle of my phone, or the side of the table I was on, resulted in the difference in the lighting.

I'm excited because I'm meeting up with a fellow blogger, Rebecca, who blogs at Life and Godliness.  Her recent post made me realize that she was in our local city and I suggested we get meet up!  I'll try to get some photos!

Have you ever met a blog friend in person?  I have several times and its been great every time!  Happy Friday everyone!

Hydrangeas are my absolute favorite. I do love the pink ones... well, who am I kidding, I love them all. But your photos are beautiful. Thanks for sharing the bounty and beauty! And no, I have not met a fellow blogger, but oh what fun for you! I have so quite a few I'd love to meet!!

Beautiful Hydrangeas, I love the colour variations.
I have met several bloggers, from UK, from Canada and from Germany. It is always a pleasant time.

Have fun meeting Rebecca! I think you'll have a new friend for sure. Your hydrangeas are corkers!

Vee said...

Oh and I forgot to say that I have met several other bloggers and one of them is you! So I know that Rebecca is in for a treat, too!

I love hydrangeas! We don't have any, but we definitely do need to plant some.

What great fun to meet up with a blog friend. I'm sure it'll be a wonderful time. I have not yet met up with a blog friend. Had plans to meet up with Vee in May, but it didn't work out. Hopefully this summer, as we are not all that far apart geographically.

I have, however, met up with an online friend whom I got to know through my blog, and we have been able to get together several times over the years since she has family in New England. A very rewarding side benefit of blogging, these dear friendships we would not otherwise have had.

Beautiful hydrangeas!!

Can't wait to hear all about your time spent with Rebecca! I have met several bloggers (you, Vee, Heather, Karen) and it has always been a wonderful experience!

I love them all, too! My purple-ish ones used to be more blue, so I need to amend the soil a bit!

I hope that one day we will meet because my dream is still to visit England!

Rebecca and I had a great time. 2 1/2 hours flew by! Thankful we could connect!

The hydrangea are so amazing! It poured off and on all day today, so hopefully they all survived!

I must come to Maine again soon!

I hope you can meet Vee one day! She's a 'keeper' as a friend!

And yes! More hydrangea! :)

Please, please tell me the secret to hydrangeas blooming, my bushes are lush and green, but no blooms! Hydrangeas are one of my favorites! Your blooms are so pretty, I have only had mine to bloom once and that was a few years ago! Have a blessed evening.

Weekend

  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
