April 25


We have an oak leaf hydrangea bush near our front walk. In the Fall it gets blossoms that are a ball made of individual flowers, that dry and fall off in the winter. As I walked past it the other day, I noticed one lone flower that has managed to stay throughout the whole winter and into the Spring. Even after all that time, it's still beautiful!

So much detail in those little petals.

Do you ever pick them in the fall and dry them? I dried a bunch of my Annabell hydrangeas last year when they were still green. They turned out beautiful.

I posted a photo of one of these plants the other day hoping someone could tell me what it was called. Someone did and it was a new one for me. Now, I see one here. I need to go check out what zones it will grow in.

I have been hoping around all of your blogs. But, love all the photos I have seen here. They are just wonderful.

I hope that old barn that is for sale does not become a brand new subdivision. But, you are probably right about the buildings being the first thing to go.
