I hate to miss a party and I really thought I was going to have to bow out from Jane's FITH today. After two weeks of heavy booted workmen with complete disregard for what they are stomping on coupled with cooling temperatures and waning daylight hours, there isn't much out there in the way of flowers. And I missed my weekly sojourn to Trader Joe's yesterday where I could have picked up something to make a showing of some sort. But darn if impervious men, Mother Nature, or plain old laziness are going to keep me away! So with pruning shears in hand I called upon my trusty little hound helper
And truth is, if all else fails...my hydrangeas dry to perfection.
Doesn't matter, I made it! Now I'm going over to see who else showed up.
