  1. Susan, looks like I'm an early bird. I would love to participate with you. Here's the link to my post: http://thequintessentialmagpie.blogspot.com/2009/05/blue-monday-outdoor-wednesday-second.html

    Thanks for hosting!

    I love your hydrangeas. They remind me of the ones in Mr. Magpie's grandmother's garden. She had some magnficent ones. Have you tried changing their color by putting nails and iron and things in the ground around them? I heard that you can change their colors by doing that. Must be something about the addition of iron in the soil.

    Happy OW...

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  2. Hi Susan,
    I love Hydrangeas. Your Nikko Blue are my favorites. I always have to treat my soil to keep them blue and they turn out pink, blue and purple on the same bush. Very interesting. Happy OW.

  3. Hydrangeas are one of my very favorites. They bloom forever and are great to dry and are just beautiful. There just isn't anything I don't like about them.

    I posted about the last days before the robins left the nest. Sorry Mr. Linky isn't cooperating.

  15. Beautiful hydrangeas, Susan!! I have heard that the closer you are to the ocean, the more minerals you have in your soil which helps create the bright blues and pinks, such as yours. Here in the Midwest, we have to amend our soil to get color, so most of our hydrangeas are white. Gorgeous, but white! LOL!!

  25. Hi Susan - Wednesday again! Isn't there some old fashioned method of changing the color of your hydrangea by burying pennies in the soil next to the plant? Changes the pH of the soil, or something??? I forget where I heard/read that...

  89. I've never done this Wednesday Meme before....it's all new to me. But, I did add my photo shares on my Wednesday Blog....it's about a bronze sculpture found downtown.

    Happy day to you all.

  97. It is so nice of you to continue hosting...and post each link MANUALLY!! Wow! Thanks. I love these posts. I look forward to them. You have so many gorgeous flowers in your yard, have you ever posted a picture of your whole yard? I would like to see it. I bet it is gorgeous. Hydrangeas are one of my favorites. I hope to have many when I can plant perennials (in my own yard, that I own not rent. Thanks again. Here is my link. http://liveandlearn-christy.blogspot.com/2009/06/outdoor-wednesday.html

  101. What a beautiful blog! Our hydrangeas in Knoxville are almost in full bloom. I love this time of year! When I was watering my pots this morning, it was such fun looking at the roses, hydrangeas, and magnolias. My husband planted upside-down tomatoes [his contribution to the gardening] this year, and they have lots of small tomatoes on them. Amazing!

  102. What a great photos! I love hydrangeas. They are on my list to add to the flower wall. My boss has several hydrangeas plants and brings in cuts each week.
    Thanks for linking us each up manually, we so appreciate your hard work that goes into Outdoor Wednesday.

  106. Hi Susan, this is my first time participating in Outdoor Wednesday and I'm very excited. My blog is new and I've had so much fun exploring others!


    I love your hydrangeas, I used to grow them in California, but they don't do well in my area of Florida. BTW, my home town is Atlanta.

  115. Hi Susan, I know I already left you a comment but I just wanted to pop back and say that I really am just blown away by how fantastic your readers are. Really. Everyone who participates in Outdoor Wednesday is just so friendly and totally fabulous. I love linky parties, they are so much fun but this particular linky party has just the best bloggers that visit each other and leave comments. Because we don't blog to get comments but they are so much fun right? Your readers are the best and can I say so are you. You poor thing, I am having fun looking through all the links and it just hit me how much work you are having to go through this week just so we can have this fun party. Wow. I just wanted to thank you again. I look forward to your Wed. parties. After this week & seeing everyone's beautiful Hydrangeas I am determined to plant some. Anyway, I just wanted to say I appreciate your hand linking us all in.

    Try to rest those fingers later okay?

  137. Hi Susan, this morning we didn't have a connection because of bad weather and no power. There was a mud slide in Yellowstone that took out a transformer. The entire town of Gardiner was out of power. We left to drive through the park and just arrived home less than an hour ago. We do have service but it is verrrrry slow. I couldn't come to your post until now.

    I do love your beautiful hydrangeas. Especially the blue ones. Flowers are my passion. Flowers make me happy and bring a smile to my face every time.

    I did participate today but I just couldn't let you know. Thank you so much for listing my blog.

    Hugs...Jeanne

  146. I missed this weeks outdoor Wednesday, but I do hope to participate next week. I just wanted to tell that Hydrangeas are my favorite flower of all time. I am not able to grow them in my climate but I do buy the potted ones in february and am able to get several months of pleasure before it gets to hot for them. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos with us.
