(Hydrangeas in my master bath)
This weekend is the Penny Mac Hydrangea Festival over in Douglasville, and I can't wait!
Saturday is my birthday (my 30th birthday), and the festival is the perfect way that I want to spend it. :o) Penny McHenry was a lover of hydrangeas and very well known among the gardening clubs around town. The "Penny Mac" hydrangea is named so in honor. Isn't she cute?
There will be garden tours, plants and antiques for sale, a flower show, and lectures (including one by Tara Dillard).
The very first time I opened a hole in this little patch of earth I call mine was for a hydrangea. Now I have about 15 plants, and I am in the process of making lots and lots of new babies. :o)

(The little "vases" I'm using are actually apothecary jars that I found for less than a dollar each at Goodwill. Their narrow necks make it hard to get anything out of them, but they make perfect vases!)
Now, for the Amelia Kate update.....
I am very happy to report she is well. Bless y'all for your sweet prayers and well-wishes. Thank you! She is back to her normal little self. Earlier this morning I caught her standing on the table and jumping to the couch. Wellness confirmed. Orneriness also, many times over, confirmed.
Poor Jack, he is going to learn all her wicked ways. I don't know what I'm going to do when he gets too big to contain in an empty bathtub while I get some cleaning done.
Later this afternoon, actually while I was cleaning the bathroom/taking pictures of Jack in his playpen/bathtub combo, I came out to find Miss AK on the telephone. It turns out she was talking to Aunt Kiki and had been on there for about 10 minutes. She told Kiki all about Jack's dirty business today in detail, all about the spider outside the window, and when Kiki wanted to know where I was, Amelia told her I couldn't come to the phone because:
"Momma has work to do."
So I guess I better get off the computer before she catches me blogging and cracks the whip.
