The hydrangeas have ARRIVED!
I have 12 of these Everlasting Summer hydrangeas spread throughout the garden, and we are awash in blue. I love the northeast coastal climate that allows these to flourish!
(Go ahead and remind me I said this in February.)
If you live in the area, please come and create a bouquet for yourself – there will be plenty left.
I have a little project in mind that involves drying these and displaying these in hurricanes. I’ll show you when I finally get there…
Annabelle Hydrangea – simple, classic and huge!
This bloom is a solid 12-inches across. It reminds me of a wedding bouquet.
Pia hydrangeas are the dwarf variety… Just a little dab of pink.
Blueberries! Still about 2 weeks to go…
Tomatoes: hurry up please!!
These were my Costco hydrangea plants I purchased 5 years ago (they were a Mother’s Day present from my mom-in-law). I’m happy to report they are now 6-7 feet high and across. Oh how I adore them. If we ever move, I’m taking them with me… I’ll have to put them under “Exclusions” in the home info.
And do you remember this pruning disaster from last year??
Oh heavens that was terrible.
Well, I’ve replaced them with these rose trees (also from Costco, as a matter of fact) and we’re all sighing with relief.
That’s a gorgeous blue Rose of Sharon in front. It was completely engulfed before. I’m sure it’s so much happier to see the sun.
And don’t worry – my neighbors found good homes for the old trees so no plants were destroyed in the making of this post.
These are Barbara Mitchell daylilies I just planted last year. They are rebloomers so I should enjoy these all summer long.
So what’s happening in your garden? Are you tweaking anything? What’s blooming?
I just love to hear what’s going on in your gardens across the nation.
