Cut hydrangeas


Cut hydrangeas-no flash, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

These are really gorgeous this year! I decided to bring a bunch inside and cut these about 3 days ago and they are loving the cool house. We are all trying to stay cool and this week is proving to be another scorcher without rain. Very dry!!
Brian is home today and is over at his dad’s house. Yesterday his dad was having trouble getting up about 5 carpeted steps to the second floor (split level) and was scooting up and then couldn’t stand up. He practically crawled to his bedroom-took 1.5 hours. We had to call ‘911’ for them to come and pick him up. He’s afraid to come downstairs now. I think we’ll have to find a rehab center or have someone come in a few hours a day to help him get his legs stronger. We live 45 minutes away, so it’s hard for Brian to go over there all the time. It’s especially hard when your parents are older like Brian’s dad. He kept saying we want to get him out of his house. Will keep you posted.
Stay cool!
By the way, after we knew Bri’s dad was settled yesterday, we went to my Mom’s house where my brother made us a nice grilled rib and chicken dinner. I threw together peanut butter and chocolate chip squares and mom had cheesecake. We plays ‘Apples to Apples’ a fun card game. A nice diversion for us.

  1. Sorry to hear about your FIL. It is really hard to deal with parents as they get older. They seem to want to cling to any independence they have, and you just want what is best for them

  2. I am so glad to hear y0ou had a nice day despite all the problems Brian’s father is having. Your hydrangea is lovely. The three bushes I planted two years ago are not doing very good this year. .. still alive, but very small.
