Can't get enough of those HYDRANGEA Blooms

Hydrangea in June
I know I shared these with you on Friday but I just can't get enough of these fabulous blooms. Finding myself and my Macro Lens spending endless hours just gazing at those wonderful pink tones of this bloom. Can't wait to see the show my Oak Leaf puts on later this week. I will be sure to share so be sure to stop.

As I took photos of some of the bright orange oriental lilies (that I will share later this week!), I happen to snap a few shots of Betty taking a nap under the flowers tall steams. Could be the fact that a wren is feeding new babies just a few feet away?
Collection of BLUES to use in the window boxes for Summer Fair.

Super excited to find a healthy assortment of annuals and perennials up at the local greenhouse at 40% off that I can use for the containers I am putting together for our local fair. The color them is Blue and White. I found a 'splash' of red and maybe some yellow to add to the basket. I will share images of the completed project hopefully by the end of the week.

Thank you for stopping by the BGgarden and letting me share my blooms of the day!

Beautiful Hydrangeas and photos! I can't wait to see your Oak Leaf Hydrangeas, either. I almost bought one and didn't. Of course they were sold out when I went back to the nursery.

Hi Bren, What beautiful blooms and Betty looks adorable and pretty sneaky in her hide-out! Isn't it fun to find flowers on sale and the blues and yellows especially are my favorite combo. Have a terrific day.

Did you go back to Bench's for those annuals for your containers? It's a good thing I don't live closer to that place! LOL. Oh wait...if I were closer to Bench's, I'd be closer to you, so scratch that first thought!

I know you'll come up with some fabulous combos. I just don't have the knack for that. I did put that purple-y annual grass PW that I bought with a dark purple Oxalix in a small pot. I like how it looks. Simple, I know, but it makes me happy! :-)

My Endless Summer 'Blushing Bride' is sure putting on the blooms right now. Others are working on it, but it's going to be a little while yet. 'Blushing Bride' is my best bloomer. 'Lady in Red' comes in second.

I am waiting for good sales to get some plants for across the street. I got 2 viburnums to block a bad view at my garden across the street, and to provide for the birds, at regular price, but Menards was lower priced than other places. I also got a snowflake mock orange on sale at our local hardware store, but it was in a smaller pot, and dried out the other day. I hope it makes it.

Your collages are awesome!
