It’s late August; the Limelight Hydrangeas are in magnificent bloom. Cut a few, and plop them in an old rustic crate.

The contrast is extraordinary. Enjoy them on the porch or wherever you like until their pink fall hues arrive, and then we can do it all over again. At least, that’s what I’m planning on doing...

Summertime into Fall brings about the most gorgeous fresh blooms too.  Like these gifted to us by our neighbor to enjoy for the weekend.

As a home decor ambassador with MacKenzie-Childs I thought they'd be even more colorful displayed in their Courtly Check pitcher.

The Rudbeckia and Coneflowers were in their seasonal bloom showing off The Green Mountains in their backdrop. And the feel of fall was most certainly in the air.

A small vintage pitcher filled with backyard sunflowers brings joy to the kitchen on my short weekend stay at home.

The Limelight Hydrangeas, well, let’s say they were ready for cutting and displaying.  They must be 8′-10′ feet tall now, easily doubling in their size.

Limelight Hydrangea trees have a mountainous display of soft green cone-shaped blossoms each summer that transition to soft white, cream, and finally, pink through the fall.

And this old vintage crate that was in our basement, well, are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Old vintage crates look amazing contrasted with white Limelight Hydrangeas. Aren't they just fabulous?  Join me on the blog to see so much more!
