Hydrangeas on our terrace

Hydrangeas on our terrace


A week ago I posted about the hydrangea plants Jan bought for my mother’s day (here). And I promised to post a picture of their final destination.



Yesterday both hydrangeas panniculata were planted in Anduze vases that we placed on our terrace.


I can’t wait untill they bloom!



The weather was fine and we got a lot of sunshine which gave me the opportunity to take some pictures of our garden.










Ralph feels comfortable with all of it and enjoys sunshine!

Have a great Sunday!

    Your hydrangeas are sure to be very happy in their gorgeous Anduze homes. The symmetry in your garden layout and plantings are lovely.
    Have a wonderful Sunday Greet!

    Oh Greet, your home and gardens are just a dream. Then, as I look out my window, I see that I live in a dream as well. Our boxwoods are just FABULOUS THIS YEAR and I see that you have the same style as I do. I love my greens with stonecast urns and hydrangeas!

    Your home and its gardens are pure perfection. I love the symetrical architecture. I actually was telling my husband yesterday that it is was not for the weather, i would really enjoy living in Belgium.

    Oh your garden is divine Greet…Ralph is trés fortunate. I love hydrangeas…and have bought purple hydrangeas for our apartment here in Paris. They are very delicate though..and have to be carefully tended. Do you like my garden in Australia…it's called My Rusty Haven on my blog….rusty iron is very much an Australian thing…rusty iron roofs, tools, tractors etc…so that's why I love it in my Australian garden. A bientot.

    You and Jan have worked so well on your lovely home and I appreciate seeing every bit of it. What a stunning environment to live in…truly you are blessed. I also love the photo of the gate which shares a gently invitation to see the lovely world you live in with cutie pie Ralph.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Wat verwen je ons weer Greet……daar zijn mijn plantjes niets bij……maar ik begrijp ook wel dat je tuin planten nodig hebben met BODY…….anders vallen ze in het niet….en dat zou zonden zijn.
    Ik hoop dat je er nog eens een post over plaatst als in bloei staan….want daar kijk ik nu al naar uit.
    Ik wens je en fijne week & lieve groetjes,

    Prachtig hoor, mooie potten ook. Hetzelfde, in een miniatuur vorm, zou leuk zijn voor mijn balkon.
    Wat een mooie kleur stenen zijn er gebruikt voor het terras, heel natuurlijk ziet het eruit, een prachtige
    combinatie met de stenen van het huis.

    Greet, your garden is magnificent and the Paniculata will just add another touch of beauty.
    Last year we planted some outside our apartment building in big containers. When they shed the leaves we put large branches of cedar tree and willows, in early spring we left the willows, now the leaves are out and soon the flowers. Beautiful display all year round.
