About Me


Living in central Florida meant that I never saw pretty blue hydrangea flowers. It’s not the right climate for this perennial that can’t take that much sun and heat. There were loads of tropical flowers and trees to love, but it wasn’t until I moved back to New England, where I had grown up, that I discovered the hydrangea.

I was living in a duplex and renting one side. The landlady had hydrangea shrubs in her backyard and also one right near my front door. The flowers on that plant were the bluest I had ever seen, so I got my camera and began shooting! As I cared for the plant, I watched the flowers slowly fade from blue, to light green and was amazed at the way they stayed so beautiful for weeks on end. Even the dried flower heads were gorgeous! Now that I have my own home, I am busy landscaping the yard and adding hydrangeas of my own.  I still have a lot to learn and this blog is where I share my personal experience.

When I am not writing, I am creating designs for my hydrangea-themed, online store, BlueHyd, where my hydrangea flowers and artwork decorate paper goods for special occasions.  Occasionally I will show off some of my work here and hopefully help brides who are planning a wedding that includes this flower.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and view my blog. I hope you will add helpful comments so we can all learn together how to beautify our yards by including amazing hydrangeas.

    We are looking for blue hydrangeas for a May 18th wedding – for centerpieces. Any suggestions.

      Check with a local florist and they should be able to order them. In most places hydrangeas don’t bloom that early.


  2. Inspired idea for a Blog.This must be what you call a Niche? Who’d have thought that the good old Hydrangea would be the star of the show. Pink and blues are my favourites. My Grandfather loved them and grew them when I was a small boy. Happy days.

      Thank you Steve for the visit. Who doesn’t like the hydrangea? They make the world a more beautiful place.


  3. I love hydrangeas and I’m partial to the green ones. In fact, I’m currently looking for a wreath made of them, but haven’t found one I like yet.
