Hydrangea in hiding

Last summer we had the most beautiful hydrangea bush. It popped up on the side of the house, right between two pine bushes and if it had been a small guy, we wouldn’t have seen it because of that. But the blooms themselves were so vibrant.

This is a really fun shot of the house’s stone steps on the side. 270 years old, they are! If you look real close, you can see the hydrangeas peeking out over the tops of the bushes in the background.

I took this from my insta feed (laugh/cry emoji).

I eventually cut them and brought them into the house. Over the course of a day or so, the blooms darkened up to be even more gorgeous.

Sadly though….none bloomed this summer. I don’t know why, but I sure did miss them.

They reminded me of an illustration that I did a few years back for my wedding invitations. The invitation designs were a total flop lol. But the illustration turned out really pretty later down the road when I turned them into a repeat pattern.
