Hasn't everyone been enjoying the hydrangeas that have been in bloom all over the city for the past month or so?  They remind me of New England.  Adam and I planted three hydrangea bushes last year and only one of them bloomed this year.  That's okay thought because I thought I had killed them last season.  I was happy to at least see them have leaves. We were visiting with his grandparents today and they have 4 huge bushes and I asked Adam's grandma if I could cut some from her bush.  She handed me her snips and said "have at it".  Sadly, most of them were near death from this heat but I know a little trick about hydrangeas so I brought them home and soaked them upside down in water until they came back to life.  I cut them and put them in this pitcher on the island in my kitchen.  They make me feel good.

I love this footed pitcher too.  Thanks Amanda. ; )
I wish I could have all purple ones.
Aren't the colors beautiful?
These are the blooms Adam cut for me off our our bush out front.  They are a sad color pink this season. They are almost white. I bought this pitcher at TJ's for $2.99 and it's the cutest thing.  These are by our TV in the living room.
