Annabelle Hydrangeas are native to the DC area and one of my favorite summer blooms. Taken with iPhone 6 with slight edits to clarity and shadow in Lightroom.

Wow @inyoureyes69!!  This picture could be in Better Homes and Garden!  The white really pops against the green foliage and I love how you focused to create that DOF!  Beautiful job! - MT

Star-Crossed Part 6

Request: Would you mind writing a story (or oneshot) on High School AU! Bucky x reader where reader is dating a big douchebag while Bucky likes her? Its kinda cliche but fun ;)

Pairing: Bucky x Reader

Warnings: none.

A/N: What are your thoughts about the story so far?

John picked you up around 10:30 Friday night for Richard’s party. You didn’t dress too crazy like some girls who attend these high school parties. You wore a simple nice shirt and a skirt.

The party had already been going on when you two arrived. People where already trashed, hanging out outside on Richard’s lawn - someone was even passed out on the hood of a car.

You sigh and held onto John’s hand as the two of you walked inside. You think the outside was bad? Inside was much worse. Music was blaring loudly from speakers, people were standing or walking around with red plastic cups, there were couples making out on the couches or in corners of the house, some girl was table dancing ahead of you, completely drunk out of her mind while the crowd around her egged her on.

“Let’s go get a drink.” John says loud enough for you to hear. You nod and allow him to pull you over to the kitchen where drinks were being handed out. John took two cups and gave one to you.

“What’s in this?” you question and he shrugged, taking a drink of his.

“I dunno. Some type of alcohol.” he responded.

You let out a sigh and took a look around. So, so many drunk people.

“Richard! William!” you hear John shout and you turn your head.

“John! You came!” Richard laughed, walking up to him with William following.

“Of course I did. Wouldn’t miss it for the world.” John replied, patting his friend on his back.

Richard and William look your way and smile. “Hey Y/N.”

All you do is flash a smile back.

“Babe, I’m gonna go with them, alright?” John says, squeezing your hand before letting go.

“What do I do if I want to go home?” you question with a frown. This seemed to annoy John.

“I dunno, go find Barbara and ask her.” he replied, mumbling a ‘fuck’ afterwards. You watched as he walked away with his friends before turning around and dumping your drink in the sink. After throwing your cup away, you look through the fridge and grab a water bottle instead.

You look around once more before walking until you find an empty corner. You smile and lean against the wall, taking a drink of your water.

“Hey Y/N.” Barbara stood next to you.

“Hey Barb.” you grin. “How’s it going?”

Your friend laughs. “It’s going good. Fells like I haven’t spend time with you in forever.”

“Ugh I know right? We should have a sleepover.” you suggest and Barbara smiles.

“We should! We can order pizza and watch movies and get fat together!” she says, causing you to laugh.

“You know how much I love to get fat, especially with you.” you joke and Barbara giggles.

“Alright, so it’s settled, sleepover say… tomorrow?” she questions and you nod.

“Definitely. Who’s house?”

“Yours.” she responds. “My brother’s home from college and he brought his obnoxious friends along with him. I can’t stand them.”

“Okay, my house. I’ll save you from having to deal with your brother and his friends.” you say.

“My hero.” Barbara says dramatically and you laugh. Before any of you could get another word out, someone stops in front of you.

“What are ya doin’ in the corner, doll?” Bucky’s voice fills my ears and I turn to him with a smile.

“I’ll let you two talk. See you tomorrow, Y/N.” Barbara hugs you then walks away, leaving you with Bucky.

“What do you want Buckaroo?” you say, taking another drink of your water.

“Nothin’.” he shrugged. “Just saw a pretty dame standing in the corner and decided to go talk to her.”

“Pretty dame? Are you talking about Alexa Waters because she is beautiful.” you say, pointing over to a girl named Alexa.

Bucky chuckled, leaning against the wall next to you. “I was talkin’ about you, darlin’.”

You playfully roll your eyes. “Shut it, Barnes.”

Bucky takes a look around before turning back to you. “Wanna get out of here?”

You make a face. “Yeah, it’s no fun here and I wanna go home.”

“C’mon, I’ll take you.” Bucky absentmindedly grabs your hand and pulls you through the crowd, outside to his car.

“So how was your day?” Bucky questioned as he parked outside of your house.

“Pretty good. Normal.” you nod.

“That’s-” you cut him off with a gasp, slapping his arm that held onto the wheel repeatedly.

“Bucky I almost forgot to tell you!” you exclaim. “So I opened my locker this morning and found a card and daisies just sitting on top of my books. It was so cute! At first I thought it was John but when I showed him, he said it wasn’t him so now I’m curious as to who it is.”

“The person didn’t sign the card?” Bucky questioned, intrigued.

“Nope.” you shook your head.

“What did the card say?” he asked and you smile, pulling the card out of the little pocket of your shirt.

Bucky smiled. You carried it around with you the whole day.

You hand the card over to Bucky and he reads it. “Aww, how cute.”

“Right? That’s the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me.” you smile, taking the card from his fingers and reading it for probably the billionth time that day.

“John’s never done that?” Bucky questioned, turning his body to you in his seat.

“Nope. He doesn’t even know my favorite flowers.” you sigh.

“What? Really?” he gasped.

“Mhm.” you nod. “He thought my favorite flowers were hydrangeas.”

“Wow.” Bucky shook his head yet again. “It’s so obvious your favorite flowers daisies.”

You’re shocked at his words. “Wh-What?”

He looks at you. “Hmm?”

“You remembered.” you look at him in awe.

“Of course I remember.” he responds and it makes your heart flutter. Before you end up kissing him again, you clear your throat.

“I should get going, I’m pretty tired.” you say and Bucky nods.

“Yeah I should get going too. I kind of left Steve at that party.” he says.

“Bucky!” you giggle, hitting his chest. “Go get your friend!”

“I will, I will, don’t worry, doll.” he laughed, watching you get out of his car. You shut the door and he rolled down the window. “Keep me updated on this secret admirer of yours. I’ll see you on Monday, cutie.”

You blush at the new pet name. “Will do. See you on Monday Bucky.” and with that you turn away and walk up to your front door.

A/N: I hope you liked itttttttttt :)

Hydrangea macrophylla, “Bigleaf Hydrangea” or “French Hydrangea”

Hydrangeas have always been one of my favorite flowers (my others being sunflowers, snapdragons, and foxgloves), and some species have the fascinating ability to change the colors of their flowers.

Hydrangea macrophylla is one of these species, and comes in two types of cultivars (or varieties). The Hortensia or “Mophead” cultivars (pictured above) sport a nice, big clump of flowers formed by several smaller clumps of male flowers. The “Lacecap” cultivars, not pictured here, actually sport a small centre of tiny (typically white) female flowers which are then surrounded in a ring by the larger male flowers.

Certain hydrangea species can change the colors of their flowers based on soil acidity. If the plant is growing in acidic soil, the flowers will be more blue. If the soil is more alkaline, then the flowers tend to be pink. And of course, a very certain range inbetween can even produce purple flowers (pH 5.5 - 6.5 if you’re curious, which is on the slightly acidic side of a neutral 7). The color of the plant’s flowers is dependent on how much aluminum ions are available to the plant in the soil, and more are available when the soil is acidic, less when the soil is more alkaline. Now you know!

And here’s my mom’s present! She adored them, but told me “I’d feel horrible about eating them!”… Party popper 😂
In this set I made her favorite flowers such as roses and hydrangeas (my favorite ones ever)! Did you like the idea? You can eat a very fragrant ice cream 🍦🏵🌹
PS: these are Violet flavored royal icing 😍
