While fall may be the shutting down of many things, it’s also the start of something pretty spectacular.
for hydrangeas when they are past their prime.
Once fall hits, they explode into a chorus of muted rainbow colours. And if you allow them to air dry outdoors, they become this amazing golden tone to play with yet again.
Dead? Says who?
All this took was a little hot glue to some spent hydrangea flowers, and twisty twigs.
And you have yourself a new little fall bloomer!
How to make a Hydrangea Bonsai
– gather up some dried hydrangea blooms and branches
– hot glue styrofoam into a clay pot, and insert the branch
– hot glue hydrangea ‘bunches’ onto the branches
– cover the styrofoam with rocks, moss and more hydrangea petals
that fall is far from hybernation season here. The backyard is filled to the brim of all things nature that are begging to become fall bloomers in their own right.
that fall offers you a season that beckons you to freshen up spaces that have grown stagnant over time.
Fall deemed a season where everything shuts down and stops?
If you think about it, life’s a little like that. We have our go go go growth periods while working hard towards something, but then suddenly, it’s easy to stand still again once we’ve reached a plateau.
Are we making the best of that new found wealth, spreading our wings out even further in new areas?
Or does hibernation (fear) set in?
that I have a fall home tour with hydrangeas and junk.
And that we have the opportunity to continue to bloom, no matter what the season is. And that the only thing that’s stopping us… is us.
Dare to be a fall bloomer?
Says YOU! 🙂
I’m also VERY thankful that my friends below are flinging open their own front doors, ready to take you for a tour of thankfulness through their own homes. Are you as curious as I on what lurks ahead?
Let’s go! I’ll bet there’s coffee… 🙂
