Winter was harsh and we weren't hopeful that the hydrangea had survived. It looked so stark and, well, dead. Today, while playing outside, Meg yelled, "Look! Green leaves." As you see pictured above, there are beautiful green leaves on the hydrangea. We are so excited. I feel like Dickon in The Secret Garden proclaiming the garden "wick." Yes, there's life in our garden. Now we just need to add a few more living things.
