I love it when the hydrangea are all abloom!
With our unusually dry weather this spring/summer here in Portland, Oregon,
I'm not sure how long they'll last.
I did read a tip somewhere online that to keep cut hydrangeas from getting droopy,
cut the end of the stem, crush it a bit, then dip it in alum before putting it in water.
Evidently the alum keeps the end of the stem from "sealing shut".
So far, it's really working great!
Alum is found in the spice section of your grocery store.
Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a SAFE and BLESSED weekend!
