Hydrangeas and Sneak Peek

We planted three hydrangea bushes three years ago and this year they finally bloomed! The leaves were always so healthy and it grew every year but never bloomed. Needless to say, I am so excited it is blooming this year! I am cutting off the blooms just as fast as I can to bring inside and enjoy.

The interesting thing is that I am 99.9% sure I bought the endless summer hydrangeas but these are different. I actually love this bloom too but I'm curious as to what kind it is. Any experts out there?
Here is a sneak peek at the guest bathroom. My Dad installed bead board this past weekend and Cody and I have been taking turns painting it. More to come.....

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Beautiful hydrangea. I was looking online to see if I could identify that variety, but I can't seem to find it. I'd love to know... :)

Not sure what those are but they are beautiful. My two small Nikko Blue hydrangeas I planted last year are getting HUGE this year and blooming away. Just yesterday hubby and I planted four new hydrangeas called Forever & Ever. I hope they do as well as my other two are doing.

I love your hydrangeas! And, I learned the hard way, these bloom on OLD wood...so if you cut them back you won't get blooms the next year...lots of pretty leaves but no blooms:)

I love hydrangeas too and only have one in my yard. I am planning on getting some more so I'll have lots of blooms to cut and enjoy inside!

Hi again - don't know if you remember me but Im the one who commented on your upcoming bathroom redo. Im anxious to see it. Once again your little boy is just so beautiful! I know only too well how fast they grow as mine are now 24, 21 and 17! Thanks for inspiring me to "rearrange" - I've been decluttering and rearranging and moving things around my house for a week now!
