Perseverance [acrylic ~6”x9”]

blue hydrangeas

The most common meaning for the hydrangea flower is “perseverance” and that’s something that I needed to be reminded of today.  The meaning of flowers, trees and other bits of trivia that come up on google searches are really pretty entertaining.  For example, did you know that the 5th of January is “Hydrangea Day”?  Furthermore, did you know that aluminum rich soils fuel the blue color in these flowers?  Seriously. 

Tuesday I’m flying out to Ontario for a visit with Matthew and Christina and their children.  I’m excited to see all of them and have a visit.  Next post from Ontario!
