Lovely Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are blooming all over the place around here. I never get tired of looking at them.

I added a bunch of them to the table in my breakfast room.  This week the table is set for four. 

Did you know that hydrangeas are easily propagated? I saw it on Pinterest and Heirloom Gardener had some great directions on how to do it. The breakfast room is the perfect place to give it a try.

I cut up a few plastic bottles to keep the soil moist. This window only  gets a little direct sunlight in the morning, so they won't get too hot.

I'm not sure how long it takes, but I sure would like to have some of these growing in my yard. These gorgeous beauties are from the other side of my veggie garden in my neighbor's yard. She brought me over a bunch the last time I gave her some home grown veggies.

Hydrangeas would make any table look great.

  1. Your neighbors hydrangeas look so pretty on your table. Your setting is very complimentary to them as well. Beautiful tablescape!

  2. I love hydrangeas! Your cuttings look beautiful on your table Pam, such a gorgeous color! We have quite a few hydrangea bushes along the side of our house, but I just bought a new one and planted it on our pool deck, it's called the forever blooming hydrangea and the flower is a little different. I can't wait to see it when it gets bigger.

  3. Love your tablescape and the hydrangeas are fabulous. Wish we could grow them here, so pretty. Can't wait to find out how your cuttings come along. Using the plastic bottles is a fabulous idea. Hugs, marty

  4. It's almost hard to believe that your hydrangeas are real!! Just beautiful!

  5. Gorgeous! I love them too. That was sweet of her to give you some of her blooms! That's pretty neat about propagating them/ I would never have thought to try!
    Beautiful flowers and table setting'

  6. Hi Pam,

    Your neighbors hydrangeas are beautiful. I love your tablescape.
    Good luck with the hydrangeas cuttings.


  7. I planted a beautiful pink hydrangea earlier in the year. I should've just put it in a vase in the house to enjoy because it appears to be dead, dead, dead! I can't decide if I'll try again next year.

  8. Wow, I just love hydrangeas too. Great idea to elevate them on your table. Your tablescape is lovely and your centerpiece is perfect.

  9. Oh my goodness! The hydrangeas are beautiful and so is your table setting. Where did you get your weaved chargers from? Lovely!

  10. Shermika, you have "no reply blogger" checked so I couldn't email you back. The woven chargers are from Ikea.

  11. I love your hydrangeas!...those are the ones that dry wonderfully....they are just gorgeous on your table!!

  12. Beautiful flowers! It's very rare to see flowers like hydrangeas in our country (Philippines) co'z it costs too much here, and I am really amazed on the beauty of it. It does really perfect on your table you made here!
