How Beautiful is THIS?






A post or two ago, I promised to show my hydrangeas when they bloomed. I also said that I was much better at sewing flowers than growing them. It's just so true!!! So, here are a few photos of those lovely flowers I promised you. You just can't know how remarkable this is....as I have killed more plants in my life than most. We planted these last year....and they are back!! It's a miracle!

Isn't it amazing that one plant can show such different color in it's blooms? I love these soft colors.....so gorgeous!!!!

Maybe with luck, these will grow as huge as some I've seen around here lately. My sister was amazed at some we saw as we drove around Searcy the other day. Some seeming to have hundreds of blooms.......and mostly blue. Heavenly.

The First Thursday Art group is coming tomorrow, so this is a short post. I hope you enjoyed my little contribution to the gardening world. "The earth laughs in flowers!".....yes indeed!! And a happy, beautiful day to you. Take care, Pat
