Late Summer Display ~

My Mom graciously gave my kiddos these beautiful hydrangeas out of her garden...

I just love hydrangeas - we have been admiring them for days on our kitchen counter!

I just love the vibrant colors...

I thew in some books, a tall white vase, a heavy finial, a couple birds and tea lights to twinkle it up a bit...




I am so amazed that these all came from the same bush...



I am sure you noticed I have been playing around with my blog design and layout...let me know what you think?
 
I hope you all have a great weekend!

I love the new look, Chelsea, and meant to say something yesterday, but I was so excited about winning one of your giveaways! : ) Love the hydrangeas ~ mine are all dried up now because of the horrible and humid Summer we've been havng this year. I did have one bush that couldn't make up its mind on color, but nothing like your Mom's! These are just beautiful.

awww they are lovely...I have one hydrangea bush but this year brought the Philly area so many heat waves this summer that it didnt do so well.
Can i ask you - do you trim your bush before the frost? Im trying to figure out the best way to take care of mine.

Those colors are so strong and bright. I love them in contrast to the drab little birds. Beautiful!
