In Full Bloom

I have always loved hydrangeas.  We planted these bushes next to the side entrance
 of our house a few years ago.  Hydrangea colors change based on the acidity of the soil
 and it was fun to watch ours go through the process and settle 
into these beautiful shades of blue and purple.
They are such hearty plants and have really thrived.  
This variety is called "Endless Summer" and they have lived up to their name.  
They bloom from late spring through fall here in New Jersey.
I love the fact that a quick and easy 4th of July centerpiece is always right outside my door!


  1. Those are sooooo lovely!! In South Caroline last month they were in full bloom and shockingly deep, deep blue. I love the shades of colors on yours.

  2. Wow, your hydrangeas are amazing!

  3. Beautiful hydrangeas Tricia...I love them too and am always amazed how their colours will always adapt to the soil when they are planted.
    Wishing you a happy 4th July!
