May = Hydrangeas

Early May always brings back wonderful childhood memories of my beloved grandmother who passed away nearly 30 years ago. Not a single Mother's Day came around without her bringing a beautiful hydrangea of pink or blue or purple to my mother. As the stores begin to fill with these wonderful blossoms again this year, I think of her and smile.  (Post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).
