Lovely Heavenly Hydrangeas

Hello Everyone and Happy Weekend! Today I would love to share my lovely heavenly hydrangeas with you. They are very full flowers with a beautiful creamy white color. They seem to be touched with a light golden heavenly dust, that makes them so creamy looking. I think the angels above must love these flowers. Their delicate petals reminds me of angel wings.

This particular type of hydrangea comes from my hydrangea tree. My lovely husband had planted it for me a few years ago. We have other hydrangeas in the yard, but they are bushes not trees. In fact, those hydrangeas didn’t bloom at all this year! Due to the hard winter , we had to cut them down all the way to the ground. I hope to get a beautiful showing next year. We’ll just have to wait and see. At least we have the lovely tree and all of it’s wonderful blooms!

The flowers are so dainty and soft. I love how they fill in this galvanized planter I used! The contrast between the two works beautifully.

Have a lovely week!

  1. Hi, LuAnn.I adore hydrangeas and yours are beautiful. They make such wonderful cuttings, don’t they? Now that we’ve downsized I don’t have a lot of yard space for all the pretty plantings we once had and I miss them so. Happy that I can enjoy yours, especially as I can tell you have a great love for the garden.

    • Hi Bobbi! I’m so glad that you enjoyed my hydrangea post. That tree never fails me! The bushes are another thing though. I do enjoy drying the blue/green hydrangeas I get from the bushes, but not this year. Makes me sad. I wish I could dry the ones from the tree, but it doesn’t work…I think it’s their color. It seems the darker the hydrangeas are the better they dry. Thanks for visiting today!
      Have a lovely week!

    • Thank you Helen for your lovely comment and for visiting my post! The real ones are very pretty but short lived. The white ones don’t dry well like the blue and green ones do. The white ones just dry and shrivel up and then turn brown. I have white faux hydrangeas in my dining room. I did a post on my dining room renovation and showed some I purchased from Pier 1. Check it out!
      Have a lovely week!

  3. This is gorgeous Luann. I love hydrangeas but have never heard of trees – only bushes. Your tree is stunning – so glad to had the blooms to enjoy this year.

    • Hi Karen! Thank you for your lovely comment and for visiting today! Yep, there are trees and they can get pretty big and full. The creamy white blooms turn to a lovely light pink/yellow tone before they dry out. Should happen soon! For now I enjoy them white or ivory actually. I’m glad they keep giving every year!
      Have a lovely week!

    • Hi Elisabeth! I love my hydrangea tree! I can’t wait for the blooms to change their color to a pretty pink. Funny how they start out white, turn a cream tone and then pink. Thank you for visiting my post and you lovely comment!

    • Hi Katherine! Thank you for your lovely comment on my hydrangeas. They do make such great displays. They get so big and full this time of year. I can’t wait for them to turn pink…it should be soon! Many thanks for the feature on Monday!
