You only need one flower …



I hate robbing the garden of flowers. I decided to pick this stem for the table before the storm arrives (if we get it). I couldn’t find a mat then saw that this little dish was exactly the right colour. (huskyteer take note.)
Hydrangeas, like the tall sedums, are flowers which look good at all stages of their development, even when they become skeletons. I wouldn’t be without them.

Hot news: there is a second flower on the mystery succulent.

It looks just perfect. I’m half longing for the promised thunder in the hope the humidity drops.

Thank you!
The humidity is awful, isn't it? We've certainly got the rain now but it still feels close.
That does work! I've always liked hydrangeas and the magic way their colour is affected by the soil.
Yes!

Thank you for the dual-purpose dish.
That was me by the way. Forgot to log in :)
Thank you!

In spite of last summer's drought, my hydrangeas are going to flower better than other shrubs have done this year. They don't need much care. Try a little rose feed in spring?
