In a Vase on Monday: A Late Offering

My Arranger had to dash into the garden late in the afternoon looking for something attractive to include in this week’s In a Vase on Monday. She noticed that Hydrangea ‘Blushing Bride’ is blushing right now, so that is what we choose to offer this week.


These blooms will, of course, eventually turn brown, but for now we are enjoying seeing them turn this lovely pastel color.


It is refreshing to note that several of the hydrangeas in the ‘Endless Summer’ group are putting out new growth with flower buds on them. So, there may be more to come.

Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are sharing with us this week.

  1. I’m enjoying your hydrangeas. Alas, mine got bitten by the snow this spring and I’ve only had one flower. I’m enjoying yours though!
