This is the hydrangea I moved from in front of the porch a couple of months ago. It really didn't like the sun and here it gets mostly shade. It finally has a bloom on it!

I've been waiting for weeks to see if it would turn blue (it is supposed to be a blue one, but who knows?)

and look - it is turning blue! Don't ya just love it? I have some other blues in my flowerbeds to share, but I think I'll save them as I won't have any stitching to share any time soon. I did finish a Christmas ornament yesterday but since it is for an exchange I can't post a picture yet. I've pulled the Red Thread project back out and I'm trying to catch up on it. I'm still working on my June square.
Hope you are having a wonderful Monday! (mine would be much better if I didn't have to go to Wal-mart after work!)

Oh, Walmart makes me crazy! I can't shop there all the time. Too high-strung, I guess. Anyway, I have yet to see a hydrangea. But mine is only a year old. Put it in the shade, but still nothing yet. I think our Texas heat is hard on them. I'd love to have yours even if it stayed green!

Hi Tina...your hydranga is looking good and I do see a tinge of blue:).

I feel for you, Wal Mart is not fun. I always seem to end up going on a Saturday afternoon and it's just a big zoo. If you are reading this that means you got home in one piece...that's a good thing. Hugs, Linda

Tina, I am pretty sure that the soil is what determines the color of the bloom. If the soil has acid in it, it turns blue.

Hi Tina :)

I'm soooo jealous of your hydrangea! I can not get one to grow :(

At least I can watch yours though ;)

I hope you had a great 4th of July. The house looked darling :)
