blue hydrangeas & lemon cypress . . .



I'm celebrating January with warm wood tones, cool grays & creams, and fresh flowers that remind me of Winter.




I love hydrangeas. They're in my home almost year round; and when I saw these icy blue ones, I thought they would pair beautifully with my lemon cypress . . . and I couldn't be happier when I see them on our dining room table, especially in the afternoon light. 

     So often it's the simple things that are the most extraordinary things.













This post is dedicated to my best friend, Alex.
Happy Birthday, dear friend!





LET'S STAY in touch!

    1. Hi Janice! So happy that you came by. I bought my lemon cypress from a beautiful shop in Los Olivos, called J.Woest, while on vacation with my mom and sister. Be sure and take a peak at their online shop. You might be able to purchase one through there.
      Nurseries, like Armstrong, carry them - on occasion. Yes, they're color is unique and eye-catching. I hope you find one! Keep in touch.
      Have a beautiful week,

  3. Your hydrangeas are beautiful! I wish I could grow them down here, but it's too warm. I'm really loving your white pitchers too. I'm trying to collect a few more of those. So pretty!

      I love hydrangeas . . . they're my favorite. I'm so lucky to have a local store that sells them year-round!
      I'll have to write a post one day and share my collection of white pitchers. I have a big collection, and use them for every thing. Yes, add to your collection - - - they're an investment!
