The State of the Garden 2013
So admittedly I’m not much of a gardener… stuff just grows on it’s own around here…
Anyway… when we moved here 8 years ago the hydrangea was in bloom and never bloomed again. Well this year with all this rain it’s bloomed and this time pink. Last time it was just white or I guess didn’t have any color. The bloom is about the size of a dinner plate. There are 3 blooms total on the plant.
You can see in this picture both my hydrangea and the bleeding heart are monsters.
On the other side of the garden near the fence we also have things going wild and this have they had a good trim to the ground last fall. That rose bush was once from a 4″ pot and was cut totally back in the fall. Well… it’s about 3 feet tall now.
Lily was keeping an eye on me when I was out getting a few photos. She’s become my constant companion. I wash her face everyday or just about and it’s still pretty stained… she has a pretty flat face (extreme face they call it) and I’ve tried everything on the market with limited success. Finally I just started doing saline and find that is most natural and seems to work pretty well. She also is less objectionable to it then some of the stinky chemical products.
It was a beautiful evening last night… and when the sun sets I think the water tower is so pretty.
