In a Vase on Monday: Lacecaps

It is clearly hydrangea time in my garden, so I will continue to highlight them in our weekly vase. This week I am pleased to offer ‘Twist and Shout’ lacecap hydrangeas in a simple white teapot.


Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are sharing from their gardens this week.

    Hydrangeas are attracting me more and more! Very elegant teapot! Did you know there is an hydrangea that you can use to make a tea? so your ‘vase’ is more apt than you may have thought.

    Lovely hues – the white pitcher sets them off nicely!

    The lacecap is beautiful. With the blue candle and book I was wondering if I should shout “Go Heels!” Maybe I will anyway, but looked up Carolina Thyme and found it is a cookbook–looks interesting.


  4. Oh lacecap hydrangeas…I never have much luck growing these. And the color is stunning. Perfect for a vase!


  5. Cathy says:

    They look so elegant in the white teapot, don’t they? Well done both 🙂


  6. Cathy says:

    I was hoping to see more of your Hydrangeas John, after a glimpse of them in your garden in the video of your winged visitor last week. Truly wonderful!


  7. Imelda says:

    Oh, so that’s the name of these flowers. I thought they were just another hydrangea. 😊


  8. Cathy says:

    I seem to have come to you late this week John. But my, what glorious lacecaps. They are my very favourite hydrangeas. Maybe my ignorance, but I always think of them as later summer flowering. Glorious whatever the time (and the right colour too!)
