Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. Thank you Sally for hosting this fun event!
Just getting back from vacation, I'll be sharing some vacation pics with you. Today I have some pretty blue hydrangea's from my hubby's Uncle's backyard. The hydrangea's were a much vivid blue this year on the Jersey Coast!

Love that sandy soil!

The waterfront in my hubby's hometown.

Barnegat Lighthouse.

A pretty blue bike near the ocean.

Blue sky's above a sailboat.

A pretty waterfront town.
A litttle area fenced off for wildlife.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I have lots of pictures to share with you all from my vacation, I'll be back on Pink Saturday with some more. We had a wonderful time, but it's always nice to be back home!
Bless you, Shirl

Aww, beautiful hydrangea. Mine are blooming too. I'm going to try to dry a few. I bought some of that silica stuff.

There's something about blue skies and blue water, that just says "Perfect Summer".

Until I started reading blogs, I actually didn't even know what a hydrangea was. Can you believe it? They have become one of my favorite flowers but I think it's probably too hot to grow them here. This blue one is a beauty!

Your Uncle's hydrangea bush is beautiful! I loved all your vacation photos! Looks like you had great weather and a fabulous time!

Thanks for sharing! Welcome home!

The blue flowers are just beautiful and the other pictures are also!!! Can't wait to see some more great pictures from your vacation.

You should stop by and see some of my vacation pictures from Canaan Valley. We had such a great time and I'm already trying to figure out how we can get back there again this summer! hahaha They do have a few homes up there that rent for $350 for 3 nights. Not bad I think.

Have a Great Week!



Hi Shirl--I have visited before but not sure I left a comment--am trying to revisit some blogs tonight to see who else I would like to follow??? And I was sooo surprised to see the Barnegat Light house and the Jersey shore pictures--I have a girl friend who lives in the same town as your husbands friend too, and I have been out to visit her once and plan to go again sometime soon!!! Love your pictures--have a great day--hugs, just, Di
