Happy Weekend Hydrangeas

Happy Friday all!
Hope you have some great fun plans for the weekend!
Thought I would leave you for the weekend with some pretty hydrangeas from my garden.
I let them stay on the plant for a long time so I can get these great muted colors.
For some reason this year they took longer to start blooming. It's kind of nice though, when this happens I can have hydrangeas all the way through the holidays.
I'm just about to leave to go on my walk, the weather is a bit cooler today, so I think it's going to be a great day!
Whatever your plans, enjoy!!
Chat again soon.

And mine are basically done! These are beautiful. I think mine were over quicker this year because we had such bad humnidity. I usually like to cut some and bring them in at this time of year and then I let them dry.

Hi Rosemary,

Love your pretty hydrangeas and they almost get the look of being antique.
They are almost as pretty too, dried.

Have a happy week
