I’m not much of a gardener, but………

Sometimes there is a “success” story. Usually it’s a perennial…..something that seems to reappear each Spring without my assistance! I present my fave…..hydrangea……………….IMG_6365   Looking pretty good (in spite of my negligence in adding the appropriate soil treatment!).IMG_6366

    The Hydrangea is beautiful. Thank you for sharing the picture.

    Hydrangeas are one of my favorites too! They really require such little care beyond cutting them back in the fall. I have taken clippings from my biggest bush and literally stuck it somewhere else in a garden and it takes off on its own…that’s my kind of plant! Love the purple blossoms so much!

      Really??!!!! I’m going to have to try that!!!! My mom was so gifted in the gardening area (of course, just as I obsess about fmq, she did the same with her gardens!!! LOL!). Thanks so much for popping in!!!! Hugs…………

    Your Hydrangea looks lovely. Sometimes plants like a little neglect to show they can perform really well.;-)

    Looking good…do you think those are harder to kill than peonies? 🙂

  5. Looking fab!! I do love hydrangea and hoping mine do well again this year. Which reminds me – probably should be adding blue-ing agent now!

    Oh I like this color! Some hydrangea’s are too vivid for my taste. I love how subtle, yet gorgeous, it is.

    I have a bunch of hydrangeas and I love them for the same reasons you too–SO easy to please and so lovely!

    What a gorgeous plant; between your soils, temperatures and rainfall, you have a very green thumb!

  9. Beautiful color. I have snowball hydrangea buffeting my front steps. They produce luscious balls of blossoms. Last evening Randy and I were running wire around the stems and connecting those to stakes. The high winds and rain last week pushed the mopheads down to the ground.

    Beautiful….mine has yet to bloom, it’s about 5 years old. I’m guessing it’s not in a good place???
