The Thing With The Stuff

comments, complaints, quandries, curses



Do all hydrangeas produce different colored blooms in the same bush, or just mine? 

Double bloom

Picked a bouquet

Floating garden

We left a yard waste bin right side-up over the winter, and it’s now full of water. Yesterday the kids made “some boats for the fairies” when they came home from school. The sticks are battleships (Baxter’s contribution), the nutshell is for elves, and the white flowers are for pixies. The daffodils are “particularly good for fairy children, because the big one can sit in the middle, and the smaller children can sit all around the petals.”
