thank you Susie…they arrived today!
they are absolutely beautiful.
My husband answered the door when the postman knocked
He came into my office with a box from Iowa
he asked; “what did you order now?”
I thrust my chin upward in a prideful way and said, “nothing” (batting my eyes)
and then it hit me! Oh! It’s my hydrangeas Susie sent me.
giddy with anticipation I opened and found a note on how to unpack my dried lovelies.
and Susie I want you to know that I always follow the rules 🙂
such as place these in a vase and take photos to show off my beauties.
the peanuts are still where I dumped them in the middle of the garage floor.
Aren’t they pretty…creamy white with a hint of soft green and tinged ever so lightly with pink.
I’m in love.
and I figured out I can grow them, but they have to be in the shade. I saw some in a flower garden in the front of my son’s school, under a huge live oak tree. I didn’t realize they grew so big, the foliage was amazing, so lush and green. They were a dark pink color. The blooms really popped against the deep green leaves.
I was so excited to see these my hubby thought I had jumped on board the crazy train.
humm…maybe he’ll realize that flowers bring a smile to my face
a pep in my step
a dreamy far away look in my eyes
yeah right! *snort*
Susie of Heart n Home, you are just the sweetest
Thank you.Thank you.Thank you
