A living piece of history. An elderly neighbor passed away a few months ago. She had the most gorgeous peony bushes in her yard. And the prettiest hydrangea bush! So, I met her grand-daughter there this week, before the house was auctioned, to dig up a some flowery love. Actually, Jeremie did the digging and I did the directing. She went home with a piece of her grandma and I was blessed to, also. I have a couple big root pieces of the hydrangea planted in a planter. But I also took some cuttings from a branch with new growth. I stuck them in moist dirt and will keep an eye on them. According to pinterest, these should root and grow into a plant. The peonies, will need to be put in the ground soon, but their bare roots should take off in the spring. We bought a few things at JoEtta’s auction, but my favorite piece of her will be planted here, on the farm!
