Yes we finally had a nice thunderstorm and rain....My rain dance worked!
The size of the blooms this year are exceptionally large.
|Old dried hydrangea|
Picked when they are almost fully open, last few buds remain on top of head. Try to pick them as pristine as possible, no brown spots .
|just a few buds on top left to open|
Into vase half full of water.
|Half full vase of water|
They stay full and lush...... and end up a light gold colour...not crushed , retain the shape of the blossom..
I am also trying to dry some of my pink Endless Summer Hydrangea ..
