Free Flowers!

Our yard is teeny-tiny, and I don't have much of a green thumb.  But I do have these:

Two large, bountiful hydrangea bushes, planted by some previous owners, that offer up an explosion of purple-y blue blooms every June.

That means that this time of year, I have magazine-worthy floral displays fresh from my yard.  Just pop out the door, snip some blooms, pop them into an old florists' vase, and enjoy:

Also, they have amazing staying power.  I cut these a week ago, and they're still completely fresh:

Long live summer.

And thank you, previous owners.
