Poetry by Lydia Prendergast
the seasons of hydrangeas follows the story of falling in love for the first time, told through the colors of the rainbow. With quirky play-on-word titles like “peachy keen,” “beet red,” and “tickled pink,” this story of adolescent love is heartfelt, full of emotion, and playful with word choice and storytelling.
