    Quite Proud

    Quite Proud

    Hey, it’s a slow news day.  I can’t even find a good Stuxnet story to write about.

    We have extensive hydrangea and hosta gardens at our home in Rhode Island, and I’m particularly happy with the way this Oak Leaf hydrangea is growing.   We bought it from a catalog several years ago when it was barely a stick, and it’s finally coming into its own.

    Hmmmm. So the professor is a gardner as well? I have a bit of a green thumb myself.

    I love Oak Leaf Hydrangea. 10 years ago, a friend of mine gave me a piece of his that he’d rooted and it’s absolutely huge today.

    I am an avid gardener and that is a great specimen. One of those things in life that makes a person marvel at the natural world.

    This is the first time that my Oak Leaf has bloomed and I love it. May I add that this hydrangea also has exfoliating bark, giving it winter interest.

    Thanks for sharing; we planted our first last year and it is a work of art.
