Hydrangeas and Horse Chestnuts

I'm having fun in the house displaying all the old Hydrangea's coming out of the garden.
There are still more that need to be brought in before it's to late!

Those horse chestnuts are called Buckeyes if you're from Ohio! One in your pocket is supposed to bring good luck. We had a tree in the woods in Kentucky, and I loved opening the shell to see the shiny nut!

Those are beautiful - I was just looking at some hydrangeas outside my window and wondering how to bring them in & preserve them without having them droop. Any pointers?

Reminds me of the days playing conkers with horse chestnuts when I was young....I don't thinks kids today have heard of it! Lovely soft beauty here!

Gorgeous colors, Sharon, and I love the blossoms paired with the chestnuts. I cut the last of our hydrangea blooms yesterday. We are due for rain and that will be the end of them.

Wishing you a warm and happy week ahead! – g

Those colors just beautiful!

Totally inspiring.
Thank you.

P.s. Hydrangea are one of my favorites too.
Unfortunately they are hard to grow in the dry southern Cal. climate.
