Twilight Beauty Deliveries
The night before we left for a road trip last week, I happened to notice how beautiful the hydrangea blooms were looking! They had hit their groove and were delivering beauty in fluffy balls all over the bushes. As silly as it sounds, I was feeling sad about leaving and not getting to enjoy this beauty which only arrives once a year. Instead of staying low about it, the idea came to share the blooms. In the past, I've offered to let friends come and cut what they want when they leave but as far as I can tell, no one ever has!
I scurried around the kitchen looking for jars I didn't mind passing on and the girls and I headed out into the approaching dusk to cut blooms and more blooms. We left some so that we can enjoy them when we get home but they lose their blue color in the heat so they won't look quite this pretty!
Then the girls and I each took a couple of jars and headed down the driveway and our deliveries began! We left jars of flowers on neighbors porches for them to find - I hope they enjoyed them!
Rachel had been sad to miss May Day delivery so this was our later in May flower delivery! How have you taken something that could get you down and turn it into something positive and giving?
