I love this time of year -- end of May -- first of June when the blue Hydrangeas bloom. Picked these on the north side of the house this afternoon. Wish they would bloom forever.
This vase from Wisteria catalog is the closest one in color that I have.
These plants are ones I got at the grocery store many years ago as potted plants to decorate with. When they finished, I planted them outside in the flowerbed. I always try to save them and not just throw them away. I put many of them with the shrubs in the greenbelt.
Placed the vase on my swedefurniture.com buffet. I've been redecorating and moving things around lately. The date stamp on the back of the gray English transferware platters is March 13, 1849. There are four in the set. One is huge [not shown]. Love them with the gray finish of the Swede trumeau and buffet.
I saw some dark red ones in a magazine this week. They were 2Die4. I also have pink but the bluish purple ones are my favorite.
Have a fabulous week!
