About Me

My online journey began back in 2007 when life circumstances demanded I find a way to earn some income – any income would be of benefit.  At the time I had a 10 year old son to care for and a 19 year old daughter in college who also lived with me.   This is when I found Zazzle and began my journey into graphic design.

Once I began to sell products, blogging was the next best option.  Selling meant finding the right customers so I began my Seashells by Millhill blog.  A little later on I began to blog about the hydrangea photos I had taken and made products to sell with those images.

Gardening has always been a favorite pastime, so including my adventures in growing flowers and vegetables was the natural next step.  I loved sharing my New Hampshire life with readers here on Hydrangeas Blue and on my New England’s Narrow Road blog.

Then life moved on and took me with it.  This time I headed back down to Florida where I could afford to live on my meager income.  My 18 year old son wanted to go to college there and my other son lived there as well.  We pooled our resources and got a house.

I’m not happy about being back in the south, and my gardening experiences are not much fun, but I do still like to blog.    Now I am experimenting with growing vegetables in a hot climate.

This blog is a work in progress, written by a nomad (with 2 black cats) who never really knows for sure where life will take her next.  Thanks for reading.

    We are looking for blue hydrangeas for a May 18th wedding – for centerpieces. Any suggestions.

      Check with a local florist and they should be able to order them. In most places hydrangeas don’t bloom that early.

  2. Inspired idea for a Blog.This must be what you call a Niche? Who’d have thought that the good old Hydrangea would be the star of the show. Pink and blues are my favourites. My Grandfather loved them and grew them when I was a small boy. Happy days.

  3. I love hydrangeas and I’m partial to the green ones. In fact, I’m currently looking for a wreath made of them, but haven’t found one I like yet.
