This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Endless Summer Hydrangeas. The opinions and text are all mine.
It’s been almost a month since we left our urban farmhouse in Pennsylvania and moved down south to our new country home in Greenville area, South Carolina! I have yet to post a tour of the new home here on the blog and will do that soon! In the meantime, I’d love to have you join me over on my Instagram stories where I share more behind the scenes of the blog. Today I thought it would be fun to share our new front porch and check in on my Endless Summer® Hydrangeas.
I was hoping to bring my entire container garden with me when I moved, but unfortunately they wouldn’t all fit in the space we had available in our vehicles. However, my Bloomstruck® Hydrangeas were a non-negotiable “must bring” item! As a reminder, here is what my plants looked like back in May when I shared my Tips for Endless Summer Hydrangeas Container Planting,
And here is what they look now! Wow! Look at how much they have changed and grown! The beauty of Endless Summer® Hydrangeas is that they change color throughout the season and bring joy to my porch all summer and fall.
The first blooms on my bushes are currently a gorgeous green with hints of blush pink. Paired with sweet potato vine, they make for a showy display at the front door.
And again, here is what they looked like just a few months ago. Aren’t both looks simply gorgeous? You just can’t go wrong with hydrangeas which makes them my all-time favorite flower.
I’ve found that my hydrangeas love a few hours of morning sun followed by mostly shade. I water them everyday as summer here in South Carolina is HOT! I was a little worried about how they’d do down here but so far they seem happy.
You can see that some of my first blooms are beginning to brown, and I was grateful to get a text from Endless Summer® Hydrangea reminding me how to remove old flowers to encourage new growth. Endless Summer® Hydrangea offers a handy text program giving you timely care tips and reminders for your plants. To sign up for it, simply text ENDLESSSUMMER to 73095. The reminders are great–especially for the beginning gardener!
I’ve already been asked several times if I miss my old front porch and the answer is YES! I loved our last home and it always takes awhile to adjust to new things. The front door color of our new home was chosen by the previous owners, and I will probably change it soon to better suit my own taste. For now, it’s such a fun, vibrant blue, that complements my gorgeous hydrangeas and reminds me to experience #LifeInFullBloom! It’s good to embrace new colors and play with new color palettes!
This summer is flying by, and I’m trying to enjoy the little moments while also working hard on getting our family settled in our new home. I’ve been listening to the Endless Summer Pandora playlist while unpacking. To find the station, open Pandora on the web or your mobile device and search for “Artists Rebloomed”; it will be displayed as a Featured Station. Search, click and play.
It’s not too late to pick up some Endless Summer® Hydrangeas for yourself! If you want to find Endless Summer® Hydrangeas in your area, you can click here and enter your zip code for your local retailers.
