Continuous blooms 365 days a year...

...and never needs water! Now that's my kind of plant!!


Back in early May, Amanda and I happened to be in a junktique shop when I spotted this lovely little painted wood cutout of a blue hydrangea plant in a creamy white vase - some of my favorite colors!


Well guess what Amanda got me for Mother's day last month?


Oooooh, I just love it!!!!!! Now I can have pretty blue hydrangeas year-round!!!
Be sure to visit Smiling Sally's blog where you'll find a whole list of blue loving bloggers sharing some of their favorites on this Blue Monday!!!
Hope you all have a lovely week!

Oh how I wish all flowers bloomed 365 days a year and didn't need water. LOL

Your beautiful hydrangeas are a perfect color to go with that pretty picture above also.

Everything looks so nice. I m always loved hydrangeas, but I don't think they like me. I keep trying to grow them though.
