I hate robbing the garden of flowers. I decided to pick this stem for the table before the storm arrives (if we get it). I couldn’t find a mat then saw that this little dish was exactly the right colour. (huskyteer take note.)
Hydrangeas, like the tall sedums, are flowers which look good at all stages of their development, even when they become skeletons. I wouldn’t be without them.
Hot news: there is a second flower on the mystery succulent.
