Happiness is: Sophie's hydrangea

When Sophie was a few days old, one of our neighbors brought over the sweetest little pink hydrangea. A single cluster of teeny blooms standing a few inches tall. Marc planted it in a shady bed in our front yard. It’s sort of tucked out of the way, and I forget to peek over there.

So it was such a lovely surprise to discover yesterday while Lily and I were playing in the leaves that Sophie’s hydrangea is now a couple of feet tall, with three purply-blue clusters. And the one at the very top is still going strong, even this late in the season.

If we ever move, I’m totally digging it up and taking it with us.

  1. That’s so sweet & special. I can’t wait ’til we move and have a real yard (or even concrete slab area) to call our own!
