It sounds as though the flowers are aging and will soon die. Hydrangea flowers don't last forever and will eventually turn a bluish or brownish color. You can leave them on the plant (some gardeners think they look interesting) or you can cut them off your plant, along with some of the stem and either toss them or set them in a vase in a cool area out of the sunshine and allow them to thoroughly dry, then use them in dried floral arrangements. Enjoy your garden.
