I know it - I am odd. I am likely one of the only girls on this earth whose favorite flowers are hydrangeas. My mother (who might as well be Martha's second-in-command) and I got into a rather heated debate tonight regarding the utility of my choice flower during the holiday season. I, loyal hydrangea-lite that I am, was insistent that they can be used with equal enthusiasm during the winter months as during the spring and early summer. My mother laughed.
