blue monday


It snowed last night. More than two inches.
Nothing like hearing the scraping sound of the snowplow in the morning.

Picked up some gigantic blue hydrangeas yesterday for a song.  Two of them, at more than two feet tall apiece. Worth it, I believe, just for the visual pick-me-up they're providing.


I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world today.

Those hydrageas are gorgeous. We woke up to rain this morning after our 80 degree weekend. This has been the strangest spring.

I wish you a few warm days to melt it all away like it never happened :)

I heard it snowed out your way. Unbelievable! The only comfort this time of year is that it melts very quickly. Hang in there!

I'm sorry you got April snow. We have had years like that in the past. Your blue hydrangeas are so pretty! My Grandmother grew them at her house, so they make me think of her.

I realize this post was a week ago but I can't believe it was snowing. Or that you found a good deal on hydrangeas; so jealy. I want to buy some right now but they are so expensive (I need quite a few). Hope you had a wonderful Easter!!! xoxo
