Lately I have been trying to identify the small things that make me happy. More on that someday.

Needless to say flowers make me happy always, now and forever... Fall flowers especially, and hydrangea most of all...And late-season hydrangea even more that that!

As the season progresses hydrangea turn from light colors to darker, muddled color combinations like green with red frosted petals, deep rose with brown speckles, and robins egg blue with purple blush.

When these hydrangea come around at the wholesale market I'm in trouble, like the don't-even ask-how-much-they-cost trouble. Needless to say, I had a slew of different varieties this week which we tied up in take-away bunches with some bronze amaranthus, tuberose and the seasons's first nice looking anemones.

This rusty and blue ditty is going home with me tonight.
