This is a biggie. Wait until you hear what happened with the blue box of exquisite chocolate this week. Here is the latest in my flower-titled story series about sugar/overeating addiction recovery, started 1/31/21. (What picture should come first — the blue Hydrangea or the blue candy box? Right, the flower.)

The Nikko Blue Hydrangea from Nature Hills Nursery in Omaha, Nebraska. Notice how the vibrant flowers are in the forefront; the past is a blur.
