A Garden Party

Even though most of the gardens in my neighborhood are long gone (hello, fall!) I thought that the prompt for the Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop this week (flowers) was perfect for the first week of November.

I know, I know- by November most of the leaves are gone and the wind has that familiar chill in the air. There are no flowers to be seen. But to me, November is all about home. The first fire in the fireplace and dinners around the table. It's about mashed potatoes and french silk pie. And the flower that most reminds me of home is the hydrangea.



My mom always has the most beautiful hydrangea bushes in the front yard. I love the way they change color as the summer progresses- from a bright, citron green to a pale pinkish white. 

 

I love how gorgeous they look with a simple vase and a rustic table.
