Propagating Hydrangeas

Back in 2012 I did a little post on hydrangeas and mentioned they are easily propagated, but I didn't tell you how. It's really simple, but you must have patience! These things take time.... and did I mention patience??? 


The great thing about propagating - besides it being practically free - is that if your friend has a gorgeous hydrangea bush or if you are sentimental about having a shrub that came from a loved ones house, you can have a clone of the same shrub without digging the whole plant up.


First, I'll show you some of the gorgeous blooms from those bushes I propagated. I propagated a blue one from a cutting from my doctor's office, a white one from a cutting that I picked up off the ground in a garden center and a pink one that I can't remember where I found it.
The blooms on all the plants are so big and beautiful this year!

Spring Tablescape

Hope you didn't miss our new house tour last week. 

If you did, just scroll down a bit.

This week I'm sharing the Spring Tablescape I set for our showings. 


I started with light and airy flowers that were green and white.



 I already had all the dishes, placemats, napkins, flatware and glasses. Nothing new was purchased.




Simple and uncluttered. 
I purchased the inside doormat from Overstock . com  and purchased the plastic green apples in the background from HomeGoods for staging. 
Hope you have a great weekend!

Home Tour May 2016

Hello friends!

Hope you're having a great day!

The project list is finished and the house is on the market. The photographer was here a few days ago and the house was clean, so I thought I'd take a few huge number of photos in it's present state.
When do you EVER get the chance to have the whole house cleaned and in near perfect condition?

So grab your favorite beverage and sit for a spell while you enjoy the home tour.
