Our bush in August.
Our hydrangea bush was loaded with blooms again this year and right now is looking gorgeous as the cooler temperatures have turned most of the blossoms a rosy pink/mauve shade. I'm not even sure what type of hydrangea this is but I think it's an Annabelle. It is about 37 years old and is becoming quite the tree as you can see by the size of it next to our pergola which is 12 feet wide!
I pick many blooms to dry and use in various jugs and jars and cream bottles in our house. This past week the blooms on the shrub turned a lovely shade of pinky/mauve.
I love the soft green tint with the pink don't you?

Do you have hydrangea shrubs? Do you use the dried blooms in your home for decor?
We had a beautiful weekend of nice weather and warm temperatures and the week ahead is looking great as well. The trees are starting to look spectacular and in particular the reds are brilliant this year.
Two of our maple trees that guard the entrance to our driveway.
The one on the right is a bit slower this year.
The top of this maple tree is brilliant against the blue sky this afternoon. The tree just started to turn on the weekend.
This is a cell phone photo as we were driving along the Trans Canada Highway from Moncton yesterday at 120 km/hour. :) Not sure what the white flash is but must be a glare shot through the window. The trees along the highway were beautiful. It's going to be a spectacular fall colour season this year. I hope you can get out and enjoy it.
Have a great week! Thanks for visiting.
