My young hydrangea shrubs in mon petite jardin are happily blooming this season. Yeay! I must have done something right. I planted two colors last year - white and pink. Also, someone told me that if I add acidic fertilizer to pink hydrangeas, they will turn blue but not sure when to add the fertilizer, before or after they start to bloom. Has anyone tried that yet?
I thought the white hyrangeas are cute placed on my blue french enamel lavabo which I purchased in Chelsea Antiques during my recent vaca in NoCal.
It was "l'amour" ar first sight as soon as I saw this piece. At first it was just a quick glance, then I glided towards it closer, circled around, checked out the price tag and "walked away." Oui, bien sur I walked away coz she's priced a bit high. Strolled around the entire shop and bought a few items, but no, I did not pick up this piece. I even felt good as I was walking out of the shop without her - BUT - oui BUT - that "Tiffany" blue color kept haunting me. "When will I ever find something like this again, I asked mon cheri?" So we searched google in our iPhones, and true enough, this is a rare piece, circa 1920's. Et voila, she went home with moi, including her rust and dust.
So pretty and worth every penny!!!
Next week, I will be sharing mon potagerie (veggie garden's) first crop of the season. Here's my first strawberry, tiny and pretty in pink!
