Hello everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. I spent part of it finishing up a week's worth of work in my front yard. I weeded, moved plants, potted plants, and planted a few new things, including this hydrangea. I have been wanting one for years and after ripping out a floppy holly bush, I had just the place for it. It is fairly small still - it looks quite disproportionate right now in the flower bed - but even now it is laden with pretty purple blooms that remind me of the first house I ever lived in. One side of the yard was lined with hydrangeas and in the summer they attracted butterflies that I loved to watch. I get this feeling of peace and nostalgia every time I see this new bush and I'm so excited for it to thrive.
I try to find beauty in the everyday, primarily through my photography, which I share here. I also try to keep my brain thinking creatively every day, even if the rest of me is not in the mood, so the posts here are as much for me as they are for you.
