I love hydrangeas. They're pretty. :)
I wanted blue flowers at my wedding, but back before my knowledge of hydrangeas, I thought blue flowers didn't really exist.
I wish I'd known about hydrangeas, I'd have had them on my wedding day!
Oh well, my roses looked great!
But I have a love for hydrangeas, because of Joshua.
They are my Joshua flower.
You may remember [if you've been around that long] that we put blue hydrangeas on Joshua's casket.
The reason being:
In December, when we were expecting Joshua [and had discovered he wasn't going to be "fixable"], hydrangeas were in full bloom. Everywhere I went there were hydrangeas - along every road, in people's yards, as fencing, in stores for sale, etc.
I told myself then that if we had to have a funeral - God forbid - I wanted blue hydrangeas.
So when they were in bloom again in March, when we lost Joshua, I made sure we got blue hydrangeas for his funeral.
Now, 2 years later, every blue hydrangea bush makes me think of Joshua.
That's why I had to create a hydrangea Bouncing Blossom.
