Don't you just love Spring?

Blue hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. I've been eyeing these at my local market for the past week and kept imagining how nice they would look with my blue willow dishes. I finally caved.

Now, I just need to find a pretty planter...

...and not kill them with my black thumb. They're right next to the sink. I shouldn't have trouble remembering to water them, right?

So close, yet so far away. ;)

  2. My very favorite flower, too, but I've never tried them inside. I doubt I could keep them alive. Wishing you luck with yours!

    1. I hope I have better luck inside than I did outside with them. I tried to have a cottage garden-roses, hydrangeas, and other wispy romantic type flowers. They all died. Just shrubs for me now, lol.

  3. Your kitchen is so gorgeous. The nice thing about a neutral space is being able to pop a color in no problem, and your hydrangea plant is perfect for spring. Thanks for sharing your tip today!

    1. Thanks! My kitchen is one of my favorite rooms since we made it over and I love changing out the decor for the seasons. Thanks for having me today! It was a great idea to compile all those great tips into one post because we all need help in that department.

  4. Hi Jennifer - so nice to meet you! I just popped over from Satori Design and enjoyed your tip a lot, especially the rolled outfit tip for your little guy too short to reach! My daughter is now well past the coordinating stage(she's 18), but oh how I wish I could put turtlenecks and loose fitting everything into the mix! ;-)
    PS - I love hydrangeas, too!

    1. Ha, I bet! With three boys that love to wear the oldest clothes they have with holes in them, I had to figure something out. Mornings were becoming a battle. Well, they still are, but at least this helps make it less of a battle.

  5. I love hydrangeas I bought two of them two years ago and they are doing great. I need to give them something to make them pretty blue-ish, last year they were turning to pink. Good luck with yours!

    1. That's great you can grow them. I need your green thumbs! I really think it's just too hot here though. I told a landscaper I wanted them and he asked me if I have ever seen any neighbors with hydrangeas in their yard. That was disappointing, but a good point.

  6. I love hydrangeas too! Too bad we don't live closer - my yard is filled with them and in the summer I'm giving them away to all my friends and neighbors! I'd totally bring you some too. :) Sharon

    1. Oh, my! I'd have them all over my house. I do wish you lived closer!
