Hydrangea Season.

I wandered into the lovely, hydrangea-hung world of Cape-Cod-based Instagram account Old Silver Shed (image above) and don’t think I ever want to leave. Hydrangea blue was one of my wedding colors; it was perfect for a hot August wedding in sticky-still, full-humidity Washington, D.C. The color reads sleepy and settled-in: it is dusk, or dawn, or something in the shade. Our florist put together an enormous heap of deep blue hydrangeas in an antique silver bowl at the top of the steps leading into our reception, and it took my breath away. (One of my uncles still talks about this arrangement!) Today, a few gorgeous finds that pay homage to the blues in which hydrangeas bloom…

  1. Oh, I love love love hydrangea blue (and hydrangeas) — I grew up going to Cape Cod in the summer and it’s definitely a deep nostalgic color for me! So funny about Old Silver Shed — my mom & I follow her on Instagram and her photos definitely take away some of the sting of not being on the Cape all the time in the summer! Haha. I really need to visit more than twice a year, considering I’m in the same state!!

    P.S. Would love to wear those Thierry Colson shorts at the Cape 🙂
