Happy Hydrangea

It's that time of year, and that time of week again. Pink Saturday with cuttings from my happy hydrangea. It's a good ole' reliable shrub the flowers in great big blooms every year, never fail.

Some turn green but most have a lovely shade of pink to them.


I love the perfection this flower has, you can't go wrong with a pee gee and soon enough, mine will be trim to a tree form!



I'm hoping that by doing that the plow truck will miss scaring one side of it.




I could just imagine a mattress of these petals, so soft, so magnificence!

Oh, my gosh that is just wonderful. It's always so darned nice to travel from blog to blog, like a beautiful magazine, and the color of my passion at every turn.

Thanks so much for sharing today. Now that the flowers are fading, Pink Saturday will need to provide step up to the plate and provide for us the blossoms of our mind's eye.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with sunshine and surrounded by love.

They are so lovely indeed. I keep cutting mine and bringing them in the house-so not good for feng shui though so I have to restrain myself. Have a great weekend all!

Happy Pink Saturday Dawn.
I am so lovin these beautiful pink hydrangea blooms. They are just breath taking. Thanks for sharing today. I am wondering if you have every tried drying these flowers? Can you dry hydrangea blooms? They would be so beautiful if you could keep them just like this forever. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and see my pink post. I would love to share what I did with the boot cast. Country hugs, Sherry

We have a couple of bushes, too. And, each year they are gorgeous. My husband cut one back so severely I didn't think there would be a bloom. Didn't phase it!

Happy late Pink Saturday.
