It's not Friday, but the linked image represents a part of my life that
began a long time ago.  When I was a child in the 1930s, living in an old
farmhouse on a family farm in Mississippi, the flowers that I knew were
those that were obtained from friends and neighbors as cuttings or volunteer
plants surrounding older plantings.  I presume that is how this original
snowball bush came to be there.  Thirty years later, after the house was
long gone, my wife brought an off-shoot of the bush to our home in
Tennessee.  After having been moved around our back yard several times to
find a location where it could prosper, it finally found a happy home and
has really presented us with blooms this year.

Nursery stock, planted a few feet away, has been really disappointing.

C&C appreciated.
