A single hydrangea head is sufficient to bring summer indoors. If that isn’t flower power, I don’t know what is!
What a coincidence! I just bought 2 heads yesterday evening. I was looking for a treat and I wanted that treat not to be food – for a change. 😉
What will power! Way to go — 😉
they are such a gentle, gracious beauty.
What a lovely way to describe them!
Gorgeous! Often given to express gratefulness and heartfelt feelings. : )
I didn’t know that — You really can speak flower language, Jen!
I’ve always liked Hydrangea! They look very proud with their big heads 🙂
Very nice colour of the one in your picture.
I wish it grew in my garden. A neighbor brought it from hers, in a round glass vase — it looked lovely!
The flower that’s a bouquet in itself 🙂 Or maybe a summer snowball. Summer. Sweet!
Nice dramatic line: * drumroll * The Snowball in Summer!
@firstandfabulous love summer snowball. I’m going to call it that the next time I go to the flower stand; perhaps it will catch on. 🙂
Way to go! 😀
Big happy delighted sigh.
Has the bride considered carrying hydrangeas? One or two blossoms would do it!
I shall have to suggest it!
This is all immensely exciting. (Of course we just get to hear about it, you’re there doing the work, making the muslin wedding dress pattern, doing the sewing, etc etc. And I bet a lot of cooking will go along with the deal —)
I love hydrangeas! We don’t really have summer here but they always remind me of weddings 🙂
I think you must have summer all year round? How lovely.
Thanks for coming by. 🙂
I guess we do 🙂 But when it’s hot all year round, you don’t really look forward to summer or wait in anticipation for signs that summer is here. I do look forward to the end of the rainy season though!
You must have BRILLIANT flowers, and lots of them.
I guess I enjoy the change of seasons (we live in New England, the northeast of the US) but the older I get, the less enthusiastic I am about snow!
Lately it has felt like we are living in our own rainy season — today included!
You’re right. We get to enjoy the flowers, and lush green surroundings the whole year through. The grass is always greener on the other part of the world 🙂 Lots of Singaporeans fly across the globe just to get snow! But I’m guessing while a week of snow is fun, getting snowed in during a long winter isn’t 🙂
You are a very good guess-er!
Thanks very much, Anne!
They’re all gone now, but they certainly were lovely.
