I've always wanted a hydrangea so this year, I bought one! I dug a garden,
lined it with landscape fabric
laid down rocks
I did align the rocks better, but don't have a picture
The hydrangea started out pink, but it's turning a bit purpleish (is TOO a word)
Then, for my birthday, my bestie bought me a blue hydrangea so I planted that one in the side garden (of which I'm ripping the entire thing out next year, making it bigger and replanting more lush shrubs and flowers.
I also found coconut liners for my window boxes
Last, but certainly not least, my beautiful Yellow Lab, Gracie, enjoying her yard. Yes, she believes it's hers exclusively and she only allows me to inhabit it.
This daylily grew one bloom and stopped, I have no clue why.
Next up? My love affair with hostas.
