Friday | Picture of the Week | Week 29

Believe it or not, I missed a few picture of the weeks somewhere along the line, so in honor of the dear hydrangea bush, here is another one!

Friday | Picture of the Week | Week 28

Before I say anything else, please take a look at that hydrangea bush…its owner must have one serious green thumb! And don’t worry, the picture is not deceiving you. The bush is as big as the house, has as many blooms as the entire LA Flower Mart, and by my calculation if the owner was to sell each bloom for the going rate that bush is worth $400!

I have seen this bush bloom for the past three years and every time I am in awe (and secretly kind of want to “snip” a few blooms….juuuust a few.) I even asked my husband what he thinks about taking a few and he was appalled I even asked. I thought he must be a boy and just doesn’t get it. So what do you do when you need advice on something only a girl can relate to? Ask Mom of course; she loves flowers so she will understand. I asked my Mom, if it would be “ok” if I took a few and then tried to describe to her just how many blooms this lady had and how she really really would never know or miss those blooms and that I would really really enjoy those blooms in my house. My Mom replied, “SHANNON? You can’t STEAL the neighbors flowers!” Yikes – I guess I got my answer and I learned, at 27 years old (this was last year when I asked), that taking a few blooms from the neighbor is not allowed.*

Until, I have a yard that consists of more than my three potted plants, I will be enjoying this seasons hydrangea blooms only through my pictures.

*Travis McConnell, if you are reading this, picking strawberries from the “neighbors” would also fall under this category.

tulips. you never get old.

In the words of Ryan, “She’s baaaaaak” and here are the flowers to prove it!   Since it has been…um, all of five days since something girlie has graced the blog (and a whole three weeks since flowers have made an appearance) here are some blooms in celebration of Saint Valentine.  I seriously never get tired of getting flowers or photographing them.

While I do not really “enjoy” Valentines Day, I do love that there is an entire holiday devoted to pink, white, and more pink! Enjoy your super pink, girlie, sugar filled day! Happy Valentines Day!
