Here it is almost November.
Can you believe I'm actually cutting hydrangeas at this late date!
I didn't have a single bloom all summer for two reasons -
cutting the shrubs down to the ground last autumn when the house was re-sided
and painted, and the incredibly disappointing unseasonal weather we've
experienced these past months.
Yesterday we worked in the garden for several hours. Weather was perfect, first
really sunny day after what seemed a week of rain, dreary skies and quite chilly days.
The flowers are in water that will gradually dry up. I'll remove the remaining
leaves - then hopefully have a nice bouquet of dried, faded blooms to use for
decorating. I recently tossed out my old ones as they were disintegrating into
confetti and no longer pretty!
Happy week everyone.
Hope this autumn week will be beautiful wherever you are.
