BLOOM: Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas  via homeework | carolynshomework.com  Every now and then, when I go to the market, I treat myself to something pretty. Like a bunch of flowers or some potted plants. This past week, I spied these 4 inch pots of Hydrangeas and I couldn’t resist.




Hydrangeas  via homeework  | carolynshomework.com  I’ve been wanting to replace some of my plants in the backyard with Hydrangeas but these guys are too small to plant in the ground right now. It’s been so hot lately I don’t want them to shrivel up and die.


Hydrangeas  via homeework  | carolynshomework.com  I transplanted them in some larger pots and will baby them until they’re a little stronger and bigger.


Hydrangeas  via homeework  | carolynshomework.com  I can’t wait for loads of Hydrangeas to have as cut flowers and to dry for d├ęcor.


Hydrangeas  via homeework  | carolynshomework.com  They’re really amazing – each flower is actually made up of dozens of small flowers to create one giant blossom.


Hydrangeas  via homeework  | carolynshomework.com  Phew, it was hard work transplanting two 4 inch plants. Okay, it was a piece of cake but I still needed a little break after cleaning up and had a nice cup of tea.


Hydrangeas  via homeework  | carolynshomework.com  Until my Hydrangea bushes are larger, I’ll have to settle for a few little buds – but even the tiniest Hydrangea bud is gorgeous.


Thanks for visiting my little corner of the creative world.

  1. They are so beautiful! I don't know if I've ever seen them in that small of a pot around here. It's nice that you can watch them grow.

  2. I've never seen a hydrangea in a 4" pot. Oh I just happened to remember that I ordered a couple of dwarf hydrangeas and they were pretty small. They have been in the ground for a few years now and bloom beautifuly every year. I have 8 hydrangeas they are my favorite flower the huge blossoms are so gorgeous. They are planted in a few different areas in my yard front and back. I have 2 white ones and the rest are pink and 2 with pink and blue flowers. I've been pretty lucky as I just plant them in the ground and they grow. I live in So.Cal.
