Hydrangeas: Better late than never!

Good morning!

If you follow this blog, you know that hydrangeas are my very favorite in the garden.The blues usually bloom here in May and June, but unfortunately, we really had a bad season this year, with very few blooms. I heard others complaining about the same thing, but I think that for ours it was partially due to the fact that last summer we did not take the time to properly trim them, with being so busy working on Birdsong.

We usually have a second bloom period very late in the summer or early fall, and I'm happy to say that not only are the bushes blooming now, but the the blossoms are much larger than they usually are during the second season. At this time of the year, though, the leaves are starting to brown and don't look nearly as pretty as in the spring.

Some fall pretties!

This one is blooming next to
one called "Tardiva",
which blooms white,
and then turns a dusty rose in the fall...

What's blooming in your garden these days?


  1. Love your fall pretties, Sue. Mine only bloom once from Summer to fall.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Thanks, Marie! Hope you have a great weekend too!
