This weeks’ bouquet was purely accidental. We finally had a little rain and it made all the blossoms heavy and droopy of my Vanilla Strawberry hydrangea paniculate. I thought I’d help the plant along by shaking off the rain, but instead I accidentally shook off a few blossoms.
This is the first year I’ve grown this plant and I know the blossoms are supposed to be shades of pink, but they start out as pure white.
I don’t have many white flowers in my garden, not sure why. Maybe that is why I was so particularly taken with their pure white beauty.
Since the blossoms broke off with no stem, I decided to let each one float in a wine glass.
They remind me of a bride in her wedding dress.
And they also remind me of the Bible verse, “Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” ~ Psalm 51:7.
