Thanks for sharing your beautiful hydrangeas. I have never grown any of my own, but admire others.
Hope you have had a fun and safe holiday weekend.

All I can say is WOW x 10!

First of all, those hydrangeas are gorgeous. Secondly, on that dining table those flowers really pop. These are some of the prettiest photos I've ever seen.

They are glorious... the hydrangeas... and the men and women in the military who have protected and served and have died for our country. Gay, straight, black, white, buddists, christians, men and women, every single one of them...

Just discovered your blog and I love this post. Beautiful words and even more beautiful photos. The hydrangeas are amazing and such a brilliant sky blue on a field of white tablecloth. So glad I found you. Sea Witch

Beautiful Erin. (as always!) I hope you don't mind, I have just posted a couple of your images (with credit to you of course) on my Pinterist ... and they link back to your beautiful blog. Hope that's ok. if not, let me know and I will delete them. They are just so lovely, I want everyone to find you! :)

Olga said...

I always thought that this hydrangea's bright blue color is not very natural, more like artificial-ish. But your pictures make me change my mind - amazing blue. Also, nice tribute to fallen...Thank you

Beautiful photos and thought.

I am so jealous of all the Hydrangea. Yes...I know...I hav abevy of tropicals...frangipani, hibiscus,jasmine calling my name in my garden. BUT I so miss the hydrangea. Apparently can buy the flowers at our local Fresh Market...at 14 clams a stem. Sheeeesh!

Donna said...

erin,
I missed this post! I love it with the blue hydrangeas and white decor. Where did you find the angel wings on the cabinet? I so need some of those! :)
Hugs
