    My Hydrangea Aspera Robusta is in bloom.  It is a strange looking beast.

    Planted several years ago at the same time as the Oak Leaf:

    My “killing fields” are doing well this year too. Topsy Turvy planters are fantastic for tomatoes. My “killing fields” are looking like the “Little Shop of Horrors” this year.

    Ah, what fun to talk something other than politics once in a while. Did you know your baby blue can be changed to baby pink? Just change the pH of the soil(though it’s easier to do in a container than in the ground). Check it out:

    Lace cap hydrangeas. Have many in Connecticut.

    Nice work there Mr. Greenjeans! LOL Unfortunately for us, the deer by the creek in the woods behind our home love hydrangeas and thus we have to make do with with our solitary beauty out on the second story deck off the family room. Nice change of pace with the garden post. Makes me wonder what other hobbies you enjoy.

    I gave up gardening several years ago after I realized I was paying an effective rate of $8 or $9 a pound for non-organic tomatoes. The price for my watermelon was “infinite” as the blackbirds and squirrels ruined the entire crop before I could harvest one. That’s fine for the government but not for private industry.

    But I am glad others enjoy gardening and have some success with it.
