“Heavenly Hydrangeas”

I love hydrangeas!  I cannot grow them, but I love them all the same.  I see hydrangeas blooming in neighbors’ yards seemingly without any extra care or attention, and they are so BEAUTIFUL!  They don’t even want to grow for me, much less bloom.  I did have one hydrangea??? grow for me, but the blooms were so tiny and not at all hydrangea-like, so I question whether it was a hydrangea or not.  And, the fact that it actually grew leads me to believe that it was mistakenly marked as a hydrangea and NOT a hydrangea at all.  Oh, well. . . maybe one of these days I’ll get lucky.  I surely won’t give up!

My daughter brought home a couple of cut hydrangea blossoms for me the other day.  The blue color reminded me of a dress that Sugar has been wearing for a couple of weeks now.  I couldn’t decide on the embroidery to get it finished, so it waited for me to be inspired.

Aren’t the blossoms gorgeous?  And don’t they match Sugar’s dress perfectly!  They were just the inspiration I needed.  Sugar is one happy little Pukipuki.

Clusters of colonial knots worked perfectly to give the feel of a hydrangea bloom.  Since I love both pink and blue hydrangea blooms equally, I decided to use both of these colors along with white in my embroidery.

    Love the blossoms and the cute little hat. Great outfit.
    Was just thinking, you should patent that crochet shoe pattern and sell it. They are so cute on the LD’s.
    We have some pink hydrangeas. My dad kept propagating them, so there are about 6 or 7, I think. Last year I put iron or whatever it is to turn them blue and one plant was quite blue. This year, back to pink. Guess I will have to remember to put the magic on them for next year. Just got back from Costco, and they had beautiful bunches of blue hydrangeas. No need to grow, just pick up a bunch. 🙂
