Hydrangeas grow so well in Cornwall, you find them in gardens everywhere. At this time of year they are beginning to curl and brown, but the colour also intensifies into deep turquoise, cerise and sky blue.

 In an attempt to preserve the colours I am glueing the petals under a layer of tissue paper,

and then cutting out heart shapes to stitch onto cards.

It's nice to be making again, now the busy season is over.


  1. Here in Brittany we have many hydrangeas too - similar climate and probably very similar soil.
    I will be cutting mine soon and I normally dry the whole heads by putting the stalk in a very small amount of water and leave them for a few weeks - the colours stays.
