One of my dearest friends, Faye, surprised me with a gorgeous hydrangea that I would describe as somewhere between mauve and fuschia. It is truly one of the prettiest colors I've ever seen and one that only our Lord could create, for it is perfect in every way! I won't be able to plant it until my husband returns, as the digging would do me in physically, so I am truly looking forward to planning it's "home" in our yard and enjoying its beauty and the memories it conjures up of my grandmother's yard full of hyrangea bushes. Every time we visited her, she would load me up with a bouquet from her hydrangea collection. I couldn't wait to get them home and into a beautiful vase to enjoy for the coming week!
It's really late or actually early, nearly 2:00 a.m. Sleeping is not coming easily since my husband has left the country, and I find myself staying up and, rather than going to bed, actually falling asleep with some form of handwork in my lap. When did I grow old?
I will not post an encyclopedia tonight, but would really enjoy sharing these gorgeous flowers with you, my friends. May they bless your heart as they have mine!
