I thought I'd take a little break from holiday photography and
show you something else today.
Remember all those hydrangeas I gathered and dried
during the autumn season?
Isn't it interesting to see the different colors they've
Although the "blue hydrangea" has always been my favorite
when they are growing in a garden, I think this
dried hydrangea that has turned a lovely
aqua color is my favorite!
Which color do you favor?
Some have brown spots which I think means I probably didn't
pick them at the right time, but I saved them anyway as I think
they add a nice winter feeling to the mix.
This wooden basket holds them all nicely,
as long as I keep them where little Lucy can't get to them...
Lucy is so fascinated with them for some reason...
I don't want her to get sick if she eats one.
So, the dried hydrangea...
I think it will become a winter staple for me each year.
A lovely reminder of a warm, summer day in the midst
of a dark and chilly winter.
