In one of my earliest posts, I wrote about the Mophead Hydrangea pictured above. It was planted in the spring of 1965. At the time, it was just a florist's potted hydrangea that had been sent to our family at the time of my father's death in January of that year. It has grown quite large over the years and is one of my pride and joy plants. Yesterday morning, it was covered with blooms in various stages, as shown below.
Just opened; still greenish white.
Beginning to show a bit of blue.
Getting there. Green gone; now pale blue and white.
All blue, and about 6" or 7" across.
Other plants now in bloom in my front garden are:
Heuchera Southern Comfort (coral bells)
I love those huge, bronze leaves!
Calibrachoa (million bells)
a gift from Gardening Daughter.
I do love this time of year!
I suppose I could have used these photos for several posts, but other plants will be blooming tomorrow and in the following weeks. I'll have "Springy" blog fodder for a while before the interminable summer heat arrives.
Tomorrow is also a day.
