Hydrangeas



From my garden



I created this simple arrangement in this ironstone tureen with the most unusual faux bois lusterware handles.  Lusterware is a type of pottery or porcelain with a metallic glaze that gives the effect of iridescence.





I picked up a bouquet of coordinating flowers from Trader Joes to arrange with the dark pink hydrangeas that fill my front yard.



I went out on a limb here as I usually only arrange one type of flower en masse.


 What has your garden been gifting you with?

My garden is just trying to survive these triple digits, but a few things continue to bloom. I shared some on my latest post. Love the faux bois details on your beautiful tureen. I'm off to see if it's by chance in your shop. '-)

Oh Terri, your arrangement is so very beautiful and your tureen is absolutely exquisite. Your creative eye has once again proved to be more than successful.

Oh what a sweet little dragonfly pin to have landed on your luscious hydrangea bouquet! I've never seen deep pink hydrangeas, but we have lots of vivid blue here because of our acid soil. Gorgeous arrangements and photography.

Such pretty arrangements...you have the best containers. I don't have lots of flowers but the kumquat trees by my front door area have tons of buds this years.

Hi Terri!

Your tureen is go pretty and your hydrangea is gorgeous! They like the PNW weather so I've got them in my yard. They hold up well in containers in the house and last a long time cut, and sitting in vases.

Enjoy your weekend!
