i had the luxury of spending a few hours in the garden today and cut a bunch of hydrangea as they’re starting to look a little hot….

for this table scape on our outdoor dining table, i put some candles in mason jars on a wooden tray…

we bbq a lot, so this just pretties up the table and makes me smile.

i read somewhere that the best way to dry hydrangea is simply to leave it in water.

however, that hasn’t worked on a consistent basis for me.

    beautiful! we have an enormous hydrangea in our yard … the plant has been here for 40+ years and probably has hundreds of blooms, so i’ve got vases all over our house filled with them. so gorgeous!
