The very last Hydrangeas ~

Early this morning after I came back from walking I went out in the garden and  cut the very last of the Hydrangeas to bring in the house for drying.

It has been so hot here the past week with temperatures over 100 degrees every day that it is surprising that there were any of them left in good enough condition to cut. 

I plan on using these throughout the fall in autumnal arrangements. I think they will look pretty in the
 new wooden box that I made combined with white pumpkins. Meanwhile, as they dry they look nice in this wire basket in the kitchen.

Thankfully it is cooling off a bit, it is very difficult to think about Fall decorations when it is so, so hot! I am longing for cooler weather and rain.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a wonderful day


  1. It is hot in here too this summer was must hot summer in Miami and rain a lot but, I star put down all my Fall decoration for this Sunday so to be ready on Monday the fer day of Fall
    i love this time the year the weather is nice
    your Hydrangeas are so beautiful miss them from Cali1

  2. Adrienne, your hydrangeas will be so pretty in your new box. I have been thinking I will pick the last of mine too. They are looking a little droopy so hope I'm not too late..Happy Thursday..Judy

  3. They are So beautiful! Don't you hate to see summer go? I sure do.

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  4. Your blooms are wonderful and will be such a pretty touch in your fall arrangements. PS. I can't imagine having that kind of heat into September.

  5. Well yes, I have been hearing about how hot it is your way! Wishing for some lovely rain for you!

    I love your hydrangeas! They don't grow here, and I was lucky enough to have some dried ones sent from Santa Barbara last year.

    You have a beautiful decorating project going! It's so frustrating to invest so much time picking out the perfect fabric only to find that it is unavailable! But I'm sure it will all come together for you and your elegant style.

  6. Adrienne, your hydrangeas are gorgeous and one of my favorite flowers!
    The weather is fickle here. It cooled off for about a week and the heat and humidity set back in!
    I do need to find some gorgeous mums for my wire planters in front!

  7. We had a hot week as well, but not as hot as in your area. And then it rained a little bit - such bliss!
    I love your hydrangeas, and you inspired me to cut mine as well and bring them inside.
