Feast Your Eyes On These Beauties!!!

Every Fall...

I visit a small office complex...

And "Borrow"...

A "Few" Hydrangea blooms...

From their surrounding gardens...

I made my annual trek...

About 2 weeks ago...

They are so beautiful...

I used one of my pics...

For my new header...

I cut enough...

For a lot of decorating...

I fill with water for a couple of weeks...

And then I just let them air-dry..

Still in their receptacles...

This year...

I got them when there were still some Pink ones...

Mixed amongst the green ones...



I do believe I see another header or 2 in there!!!


Hope you are all having a great day...

Finally got my jam made today...will share later..{pics...not the actual jam!!!haha}

I have some chicken marinating in buttermilk...and I have everything ready to slap another blueberry-buttermilk breakfast cake into the oven...

Still some under-the-weather going on...hope I don't get it!

Enjoy the rest of your day....and evening...another gorgeous day!!

                                 Cheers!  :o)

  8. Call me when you and Devon are arrested, secateurs in hand. I wonder how much it will take to bail you both out of the clink! I think about you every time I pass that hedge. Actually, I could be convinced to "keep quiet" if you also got me some :)
