All along the garden path, the hydrangeas are coming into bloom.
I am pleasantly surprised to see them doing so well. Right after they were planted last summer we had a HOT and DRY spell which had me trying to keep up with watering them enough to keep them alive.
I am pleased to see that not only are they alive, they are also thriving and blooming to beat the band.
I especially love them when they are in their various stages of bloom. The different shades of colors look so pretty together on one shrub.
Pretty in Pink too.
Right across from the garden path, my old blue hydrangeas are also putting on a show. I've had them for years and also blogged about them for years. They seem to thrive here much to my delight. The shades of blue they produce are probably my most favorite color in the world.
This little garden statue has been here for years too and it shows.
He is looking a little worse for the wear. At the same time, he looks content to be reading away under the hydrangea canopy. Chocolate mint is growing in the blue pot next to him.
Sounds like a rather nice spot to hang out to me, so I am leaving him right where he is.
I think I'll do my reading next to a hydrangea in the living room.
I'll follow that up with dinner next to another hydrangea.
Inside and outside, hydrangeas have arrived
I couldn't be happier.
