Just posted on the blog today, see link in bio. -everything you need to know about the show stopper MLS strawberry hydrangea shrubs. Why These hydrangea bushes are among the most robust and prolific bloomers found in gardens today, so it's no surprise that the Vanilla Strawberry™ Hydrangea was voted 'Top Plant of 2010' by the American Nursery and Landscape Association. Known for its color-changing blooms, this hardy shrub never disappoints.

Around mid-summer, depending upon your region, delicate creamy white flowers emerge in generous cone-shaped clusters at the ends of sturdy red stems. As the flowers mature, they begin to turn blush in color, making their magical transformation from ivory to cotton-candy pink and then finally aging to a rich strawberry-red or maroon. #galpalblog #galpallife #gardensesign #landscapedesign # hydrangea #vanillastrawberryhydrangea #homeandgarden

This is a great message to reflect upon. How do we view life? With all of its wondrous beauty, life can be difficult and very challenging. Sometimes when we are in the moment, it can feel like we are just trying to survive; waiting for time to pass and for things to get better.

When we get to the point that we view life’s challenges as learning experiences and building blocks, then we begin to truly embrace the adventure!

I'm reposting this from my Gal Pal @graceforyoureveryday. Life is what we make it and it is a choice we repeat over and over again. I think we lose our sense of wonder as we grow older; we can get too comfortable and fail to see the richness in the ordinary. Why not try to approach each day with a sense of wonder and expectation?! Each day we wake up is a gift and every moment is an opportunity that will not pass our way again. 😇
