It's almost eighty degrees in here in Cincinnati, and my kids just got done having a snowball fight. What...you don't believe me? They did - with the flowers of snowball hydrangeas!
I went outside and saw my kids plucking the white pom-pom flowers from the bushes. "What are you guys doing?" I asked.
"Having a snowball fight!" they answered.
I watched them chase each other around the yard, throwing flower balls at each other. It looked like fun, so I grabbed one, too. Pretty soon we were all pelting petals at each other.
And do you know what? It didn't hurt! I think I kind of like spring snowball fights!
