Ok here’s a funny story.
Before I left for my 4 week long trip to London and Paris (in January)… I snipped off a pretty hydrangea flower stem from my garden, placed it into a tall jar of water and left it in my laundry.
You know, for decoration.
Then I hopped on a plane and left my husband and three kids at home.
4 weeks later.
I noticed that no one thought to throw out the rotting stem?!
But I also noticed that a baby hydrangea had sprouted!
It was very cute.
I didn’t know hydrangeas grew from stem cuttings!
And I wouldn’t have known this because… I would have NEVER left a rotten stick in a jar of water for 4 weeks!!!
