Endless Summer ~ Day 206

There are many varieties of Hydrangea. Mine is called Endless Summer. I love it because at the end of the season, I cut it all the way back and it comes back in the late spring. Another perennial in my garden. And the blue blooms are just beautiful. I remember seeing these in my Grandmother’s yard, so it always brings back good memories seeing these blooms.

Some people will bring the blooms indoors and dry them for floral arrangements. Hydrangea flowers are very easy to air dry. Cut the blooms at any stage, remove all leaves, and hang the stems upside down in a warm, well ventilated spot until they are completely dry. The flowers will last for ages and even longer if spray painted or dyed for more intense color. Use the dried blooms in floral arrangements or attach to wreaths with floral wire.
