Our ‘Blushing Bride’ hydrangea has appeared in numerous vases over the year. Its blossoms are now fading into the fall, but they have retained a certain beauty as they age.
I have paired it with an antique photo of my great-great grandmother, Rebecca Marie Dawson Duckworth (1824-1893), taken rather late in her life. I am confident that my great-great grandfather was convinced that she was still a beauty, even in her twilight years. She was the seventh generation and last Dawson on my family tree.
The idea for this weekly sharing of something from our gardens comes from Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. Please visit her and see what she and others are sharing this week.
