I miss growing flowers very much. When we moved to Auckland in May 2009 we sold our Southern house and have rented up here ever since. It really is easier when planning around schooling, work contracts, health etc.
At our current rental property, we don't have a garden. Mark has managed to squeeze a very successful vege plot in and we have strawberries and herbs growing on the deck. It has been a year of container gardening for us.
So a few days ago I noticed something quite spectacular growing along our driveway. I knew it was there, but expected a dull shade of pink maybe. Like the Canterbury soil had always delivered me.
Shocking blue Hydrangeas
It's more than a baby blue......and 'shocking' isn't quite the right word either.
So yummy. I could almost eat them up.
I am thankful I could bring them up to my kitchen and look at them all day.
Small things huh.
Sometimes that's all you need.
