Even though I think hydrangeas are so beautiful, I cannot keep them alive. They look great in a vase for about 5 hours and then droop their way into the composter.
At Starbucks three weeks ago, I saw a stunning sage green clipping tossed in the parking lot. Never one to waste, I picked it up knowing I could get a few hours of beauty from her.
Three weeks ticked by and everyday the hydrangea bloom looked as full and lush as she had the day I found her. The curse is over! I once again can fill the house with hydrangeas!
This morning as I went to change the water in the vase, I realized that it is silk.
