Chalkart and Hydrangea Blooms...


After a busy week, I took a few minutes to create some new art on my Chalkboard Canvas…

I used a favorite quote by Audrey Hepburn in honor of spring and all that is blooming this time of year.
 
 
Speaking of blooms…

My hydrangeas are thriving! I am convinced that I have finally found the secret to trimming hydrangeas. I shared it in my last post How To Trim Hydrangeas

Did you know that you can change the color of your hydrangea blooms from pink to blue? By simply adding different nutrients to the soil you can change the color of your blooms. Adding aluminum to the soil or water that is used to water the plant will change pink blooms to blue…cool!  Read this article for more info.
 
 
My favorite thing about having beautiful blooming hydrangea bushes is bringing them inside to enjoy…

  2. I love that quote too. Your hydrangeas are the perfect image to post with the pretty chalkboard. The other day I went in my laundry room and brainstormed words that I think of with summer. Just put random words on the chalkboard. It's fun!

  3. I am so envious of your hydrangeas, I have never had luck with them and they are such wonderful cut flowers! Awesome chalk board too
