I just realized that I never did a post on the beautiful hydrangeas Hubby gave me for Mother's Day.
Hydrangeas were our wedding flower. I ordered my wedding flowers on the internet, and thought I was purchasing this lovely lavender variety. The day before my wedding, the flowers showed up, and they had sent the wrong ones. Nikko blue was not what I had in mind, but it was still beautiful!
You can't go wrong with hydrangeas...
I took this picture of my bouquet over two weeks after Mother's Day, which is a testament to how beautifully these flowers hold up. I've clipped their stems and refreshed their water daily, to prolong their stay with us. When they started looking a touch droopy, I floated them in a sink full of water to give them a boost. They were very thankful.
And speaking of Mother's Day flowers, any time my sweet Asher finds a flowering weed, he plucks it and hands it to me with an enthusiastic, "Happy Mother's Day, Mama!"
It's been Mother's Day for almost three weeks, now!
How lucky am I?
