This is the Annabelle Hydrangea. It is white all through late spring and most of the summer. The blooms are huge and beautiful. The only problem is when it rains they get so heavy they bend to the ground.
As they age they turn green. That's what they are now.

I've brought some in to dry them. I usually stick them in water for a few days and as they start to feel drier, I pour the water out and just let they dry in the vase.

It's nice to have green in the house in the cold winter. I just picked the blue one for the heck of it. I forget the name of that kind. I'll bring some of them in too. They are blue, purple and pink.


  1. Beautiful! I love hydrangea -- every color!

  2. I love the green color! Like I have said, hydrangea give twice, I cut them when they are new blooms and now to dry!

  3. I absolutely adore hydrangeas in any color. After seeing folks drying them in blogland last year, I tried to dry some. Mine look poopy. Sigh.

  4. Hi lovely lady.
    I love your Beautiful Hydrageas!!! All my flowers are drying up becouse of the Hot day's in Texas. I was looking at my sidebar and you had a new post. I hope you have a wonderful day with your family, and keep cool OK. I hope you can come visit my new Tablescapes.
