It’s the first Friday of JULY!  Oh my… the weeks are going so fast!

Here’s my Endless Summer Hydrangea with blooms in various stages of development. I’m taking this as a sign that this’ll be a good year.  Some years it turns out to be more of an “Endless Bummer” as my friend says… she’s had horrible luck with hers.EndlessSummerHydrangea1 EndlessSummerHydrangea2 EndlessSummerHydrangea3


It bloomed better once I learned to prune back the dead stems only after the new growth had started… looks ugly ’till then but it pays off in the end.

The Astilbe are just starting to bloom too.  I have them in a range of colors but the pinks are always the first!

Have a wonderful Fourth of July!
