Hydrangeas .....So many varieties in the market today....
One of my favourites is the Annabelle.
These beautiful large blooms of white that turn to citrus green in their prime.
You can never have enough....
So easy to dry and preserve throughout all seasons.
I'm sure there are many ways to preserve or dry hydrangeas,
but I have found that this works best for me.
When they turn citrus green here in early September I cut the stems on an angle then I hammer the ends flat. That way they will still drink.
I only use a small amount of water in my jug and within a few days their beautiful blooms have hardened.
I will often spray them gold and add them to outside wreaths and urns. I like to have an abundance so I can insert them into our Christmas tree as well.
What is your favourite Hydrangea and do you decorate with them throughout the year?
Love hearing from you.
