HYDRANGEAS 101

TODAY I PICKED MY HYDRANGEAS TO DRY & PAINT FOR MY SHOW.
FIRST YOU PULL ALL THE LEAVES OFF OF THEM & GATHER A BUNCH & WRAP WITH A RUBBER BAND, PUT A WIRE "S" HOOK ON THE BAND & HANG UPSIDE DOWN, THEN PUT THEM IN A DARK BUILDING & IN ABOUT A WEEK THEY SHOULD BE DRY. THEN THE FUN BEGINS; GET SOME SPRAY PAINT, USE LEAFY GREEN, SOMETIMES PINK OR BLUE, BUT I LIKE GREEN THE BEST, JUST SPRAY & HANG TO DRY, THEN PUT IN A BASKET OR WATERING CAN.
