~ Anticipation ~
The buds on my hydrangea plants are telling me that it won't be much longer before they are blooming. I can hardly wait. I think they are one of the most gorgeous flowers and every year I eagerly anticipate their arrival.
Yesterday I cleaned and sharpened my pruners so when the time comes I'll be ready to cut some to bring in the house.
In the meantime a bit of hydrangea decor was added to the family room. While running errands the other day I decided to take a quick lunch break at Cracker Barrel. Well, I don't think it's possible to eat there without checking out the little store, is it? On this day I was so glad I did. These hydrangea topiaries were in the clearance section ... in the far corner ... waaaay up on the top shelf. I almost missed them. Happily, I spotted them and a nice tall man brought them down for me. I think they were just the thing that was needed to flank the hydrangea picture that has been hanging up there for many years.
I shopped the attic to find some coordinating accessories.
It's been raining all day today, but that's okay with me. I'm hoping that after a good soaking those hydrangeas will be ready to bloom even sooner.
