Pink-Hydrangea-3I just love hydrangeas and there is a pink color mixed with this lovely shade of green that I adore.

Pink-Hydrangea-3I was away this week visiting my friend Judy and she had the most magnificent bouquet of hydrangeas in the colors that I love best.

Pink-Hydrangea-3I photographed them from all different angles so that I could paint from the photographs.

But come the fall, my favorite shades of hydrangea are available to paint. This is Judy's living room and her gorgeous cat Inky. She has the most beautiful home.

Pink-Hydrangea-3Besides admiring a bouquet of hydrangeas, I just love to paint them too.

I love hydrangeas too and especially the fall colors. I have a white one that has turned to pink and the almost red ones are pink and green too at this moment. Your paintings look fab too!

Hi!
Your Hydrangeas are beautiful! I have never tried to grow any here. You have to have the right soil for them to stay the color you buy. Thanks for sharing. Take Care!!

Hi Karen, I found you though Maria's blog from Poland. What a gorgeous blog! What is funny is that I am related to Harveys and almost all the Cox's there are, so your name really stood out to me! Maybe we are distantly related. lol. Wow you are popular...16 comments and still going! It's interesting that you also end your comments with "Blessings" the same way I do! Nice to find aother blogging friend!

Hi Karen, I love hydrangeas too and my Endless Summer ones are still blooming but they are blue. My other bush is that pink and green color but I didn't get very many blooms this year. I have dried hydrangeas banked on top of the old step back cupboard in my living room. Hope your Pink Saturday has been the best. ~ Lynn
