An arrangement I did last spring with white hydrangeas and seeded eucalyptus in a vintage ironstone pitcher.And the best thing about them? They work year-round in decorating. Other flowers have a very seasonal association. Peonies in the spring, paper whites in the winter, or gladiolas in the summer. But hydrangeas really are around most of the year, so they look great at any time, for any occasion. They look spring-y and fresh in the spring and summer months (especially the Limelights that have a slightly green tinge), but they also look amazing in the winter. I love them mixed with eucalyptus in fall, or pine and berries at Christmas.
Seriously?! Does it get any lovelier than this? I adore the white hydrangeas against the old wooden box.
