As I sat sipping my coffee this morning, thoughts of my next blog post were running through my mind. I have been thinking that maybe it's time to post on something other than flowers and my garden. As I was mulling this over, I somehow migrated to the backyard with clippers and camera in hand.
Knowing that it won't be much longer that my Nikko Blue Hydrangeas will be in bloom, I thought I'd better cut a few more bouquets while the cutting is still good.
Earlier in the week I discovered this pitcher and bowl set which I thought was perfect for my kitchen.
Of course a few hydrangeas could kick the perfection factor up a notch, don't you think? :-)
I couldn't resist pairing them up with this toile tablerunner.
It should be a cheery centerpiece in my blue and yellow kitchen. I hope you don't mind me sharing my hydrangea happiness with you once again. I'm outnumbered by men in my house and they just don't get as excited by these things as I do, if you know what I mean ;-).
Now, I promise my next post won't involve my flowers or my garden. But before I go I'll show you a couple more flowers I took pictures of ...
Easter in June
I always buy an Easter Lily to have inside at Eastertime. Since moving to North Carolina 11 years ago I have been planting them outside when the danger of frost is past.
This was a garden tip I read about in our local paper and I'm so glad I tried it because it works ~ really well.
Last, but not least, one of my very favorite things about living in the south ~ the sweet and elegant magnolia.
From my happy home, that is now filled with hydrangeas, I wish you a most beautiful weekend.
