I've cut back a good number of my hydrangeas as the rain had beaten them to the ground and washed the colour out of them.
I've 2 pots full in the house and I put several into my Dad's old watering can
Thanks for looking
Enjoy the weekend and the sun while it lasts

A rather beautiful image Helen, which certainly is full of love and caring, a real heart warmer.

It was a great year for hydrangeas. Mine have been covered with bloom. This makes a fine arrangement.

Thanks Joline - these were beautiful in early July, but the rain levelled them to the floor, still they will last some time longer in water.

These watering cans certainly make good plant pots don't they? Especially for watering them from the bottom! A super capture, Helen Wink

We are to quick to throw away things today Helen, we can use them to create some beautiful touches to a garden, my father used the tin baths he used to wash in after finishing a shift down the Mine, to great effect with a variety of plants, after they opened the pit head baths. beautiful capture.

Trev.
