Number Six

The next Thing That Makes Me Happy is having fresh flowers in the house. These hydrangea flowers just showed up in the garden, so I did a little research and tried this "boiling water" method to cut them and try to prolong the blooms. We'll see how long they last. Here is what they look like outside:

Unfortunately, it is on the side of the house behind a giant spruce (?) tree, and no one can really see it except my next door neighbor. There is another hydrangea outside that is just starting to bloom, and it looks like the flowers are a sort of magenta color. It's in the front, so we'll be able to enjoy it. Can't wait to see what's next. Interesting things are happening in the swamp...should see some blooms soon on whatever they are.
