Bringing the outside IN

We moved into our house in the burbs almost exactly three years ago. It was new construction so our landscaping was, ahem, limited. I’ve quickly learned that you need to take it one step at a time, little by little, add a little one year, then more the next. One of my first plantings was my hydrangeas. I. love. white. hydrangeas. I didn’t know my love for them until my wedding (four years ago), and they certainly made an appearance in my wedding bouquet.

So when I planted some hydrangeas in front of our house a couple of years back, I of course thought they were going to immediately look like my wedding bouquet.

Womp, womp, it wasn’t immediate.  But after two years’ blooms, I can now say that they are gorgeous!

I’m currently seeing them start to bloom, and they make me happy.

They are so large in fact, that I thought snipping a few off and bringing inside some fresh flowers couldn’t hurt.

So that is exactly what I did.

Yes, I like you.

And, you.

Snip, snip.

And now I have a fresh, beautiful centerpiece. I heart summer, and simple, feminine, delights that are as easy as bringing the outside in.
