Today's Flowers: Hydrangea That Was

Wandering around outside yesterday, I found myself facing some winter damage to trees and shrubs around the wee humble abode.  It was good to see these stalwarts of the summer garden are back for another round.  In fact, it's amazing to me how much outdoors is business as usual this spring despite the hefty, heavy winter.  Aside from the odd dramatic breakage, just about everything bounced back.  There's a lesson in this.

  4. I saw a Magnolia in full bloom down in Westchester yesterday. The hydrangea picture is really neat except it is a little underexposed.
