What's been keeping me so busy?

Hi friends!  I don't feel like it's been that long since I posted, but somehow it's been over two months! Is time flying like that for all of you too?!

We have been super busy with the shop.  We celebrated our 1-year anniversary in April!  The first year went by in a flash and we had so much fun and felt so incredibly blessed.  We have some of the best frequent customers!  We have learned a great deal and have been open to trying new things. Several gift lines have been added by popular demand.  That wasn't initially in my plan, but it's been FUN and we have brought in some great items.  I shop small and Southern as much as possible!

I thought I'd share a few recent photos of the shop:










































































In other news, I have done a little clean-up on my blog.  I deleted links from my sidebar if they hadn't posted in a year or more.  I also added several new links that you will enjoy!

My hydrangea tree in full bloom!

Hi friends!  A couple of posts ago I shared photos of my hydrangeas and my new hydrangea tree - see that post here.  I promised to share photos when my tree was in full bloom.  Take a look - it was planted 11 weeks ago - I'm thrilled with how well it's doing!

A quick update on my hydrangeas

Hi friends & Happy Father's Day to the dads and granddads!

Below are pictures taken today to update you on my hydrangeas and my new hydrangea tree (planted 8 weeks ago).






















You can't tell in this photo, but my hydrangea tree has tons of tiny blooms - I'll share more when the blooms are full!

It's that hydrangea time of year!

Hi friends!  Gosh, I haven't done a post since Easter - time flies when you're having fun...!  If you've been hanging out here at Southern Charm Cottage long you know how I love my hydrangea shrubs.  I have two areas in my backyard devoted to hydrangeas.  And about 4 weeks ago I decided to try a hydrangea tree!  I never knew hydrangea trees existed until our recent trip to Natchez, MS.  See my post on Natchez here.

This is from my first section of hydrangea shrubs - planted 2-3 years ago:














This is from my second section - planted just last year:



























And here is my hydrangea tree at week 4.  It came looking like dead sticks so I'm pretty thrilled with this progress!


















Follow me on Instagram @sacullum and search #hydrangeatree to see weeks 1 thru 4 and more to come on my hydrangea tree!
