I might be a worry whopper, but I don't like doing things last minute unless I am absolutely sure I don't care about whatever "it" is. I started planning for Miss T's Birthday Party seven weeks away from the actual date, which was when I bought this Hydrangea Macrophylla. And since it will be her first Birthday party ever, I wanted to make sure it is very special.
Hydrangeas have been making their way into my heart. They are so beautiful when healthy and well cared for. As an inspired propagator, I tried to multiply the Hydrangea Mopheads with rooting hormones by water and by soil and none had yield much success. I've also tried planting a grown hydrangea to the ground, but did not see it again after the blooms. I stuck to the lighting instruction of morning sun and afternoon shade, but no matter where I've placed the hydrangeas, I couldn't keep it alive after the blooms. That leads me to share another one of my secrets today, I live by: try and try again.
I saw this beauty and chose it for the barely blooming buds it had. I was hoping it will fully bloom by next month for T's Birth Day. Unfortunately, all the buds bloomed a few days after I brought it home, but I was thrilled to see such a gorgeous Pink Hydrangea. It gave me an idea to use it as displays for the Birthday Party. This is how they became my Pink Hydrangea Party flower.
Honestly, could the whole party preparation be a way for me to convince my SO to plant more flowers in the yard? You know how those male brain works, if the reason is presented in a matter of importance, then it becomes a priority, if not it will go on the honey do list.
T and I wrapped the table with one of the Birthday Party table covers to see what it would look like, so this is just a peek for now. I hope to show you the whole backyard on T's Birthday post on July 17~
