How did I get so lucky?
I’ve been watching this hydrangea bush slowly go into hibernation for the winter, thinking I harvested every last flower I could. Until I saw a peek of blue.
I opened the bush and found an entire stash inside, safely protected from the dew and frost!
You know what that means! I had to find the perfect place for them to completely dry out, so I came up with a wire mesh basket and an old galvanized bucket.
A little layering magic did the trick!
I also couldn’t resist playing with my favourite old kettle. Isn’t the patina totally amazing?
So to celebrate the end of hydrangea season, here’s what else I did with them this year.
