Goodness, time has gotten away from me here. I’m planning all the plant moving for this fall and I have been shopping some online sales for fall plants and bulbs!
In early April, I had completely chopped down the overgrown hydrangea in the back and was worried that I had killed it.
This was a couple of weeks before we lost the fence in a fierce wind storm. I was all happy with the progress of it as of last week:
Big blooms, nice shape and all that. Then heavy rains came and it is all drooped down.
I shook out the branches hoping relieving the water weight would let the branches come back up, but it only worked for a few inches. It would look better if all of the branches drooped instead of the top ones still sticking straight up LOL! I might try a tying trick or something next year.
I had posted this on my other blog, but the passion flower is blooming. It’s so pretty!
The blooms only last about a day, so I’ve checked it every day to find all the new buds. This is only one vine. I can imagine having several intertwined would be gorgeous.
You can also tell summer is starting to wind down a little when the black-eyed Susans are blooming. I took this picture downtown in the park.
More fall? What we thought were pumpkins turned out to be gourds!
This vine is a monster, too. It’s climbing everywhere and I keep moving it to keep it out of my other plants. There are at least 8 gourds on this vine so far and it keeps growing every day!
