Yes, today I am officially 41. My daughter is shocked that I can be this old and still function. Whatever. When she turns 41 I’m going to call her and laugh and laugh and laugh.
Since it’s my birthday, I’m going to post some pictures of one of my favorite things – hydrangeas. When I moved from Alaska, I vowed that the only flowers I would plant in my yards are flowers that cannont survive in Alaska. My first purchase was two mophead hydrangeas. These hydrangeas have suffered a lot. One year I pruned them back too far and then accidentally spilled too much fertilizer the next spring. I thought I killed them and was lamenting the fact because hydrangeas aren’t cheap. They somehow pulled through that summer and have only gotten bigger and better in the last 5 years.
So here are my three of my four girls . . . .
I am right now on a lovely little getaway provided my mother in law. I’m sure I’ll have lots of embarrassing stories to share when I return.
