The beauty of this bulb with it's brown freckles amazes me.
You can plant the little black bublets on it's stem and have more of these next year.
Oak Leaf Hydrangea
I love that it fades to pink.
Nikko Blue Hydrangea
It is fading to a light purple. I have been trying to dry these without success.
Maybe they are waterlogged this year. Normally I dry bucks of them.
The flower garden proper is overgrown and filled with weeds.
I pulled weeds for two hours Monday. I can hardly tell. It is disheartening.
I tied it to this wrought iron post and I am liking this look.
The Talented B gave me the wrought iron post and idea. She is a smart gal.
You can see my Beautiful Weed post about this plant here.
The grass certainly has enjoyed the continuous daily rain for 45 day in a row.
The night our gravel road washed away we had ten inches of rain in four hours. I do not fertilize our grass or fuss over it in any way. We have a huge amount of grass so I merely mow it.
Can you see the enormous Spider Plant on the right?
I dug it out of my sister's neighbor's trash. My sister was a little bit alarmed but got over it.
The plant looked rough but has recovered splendidly.
It is thundering now-more rain!
