I love hydrangeas!
Any time of year, for any reason. I just love them.
Gail shared with us (more than a year ago) how to dye them a more brilliant color and I did just that last Christmas. I dipped them multiple times in red Rit dye and put them in the Christmas tree–it was beaUtiful!
This year I had a different idea. I thought it might be interesting to Kilz them white! Ehh-yea ~it was okay. They looked rather “flat.”
So with nothing to lose, I pulled out some lilac and chartreuse spray paint and sprayed them back to the color of SuMMeR! And for good measure–a little aubergine!
They look fanTAStic! If I do say so myself! ; D
The picture on top was taken in the daytime,
the picture collage was taken last night with artificial light.
The daylight pic shows the color more accurately, but I kind of like the more “reddish” coloring too!
