I'm so excited that the Hydrangeas I planted two years ago are finally blooming. I was reckless in planting them in afternoon sun, but that's where I wanted them to be, so that's where they went.
When the gooseneck loosestrife exploded this Spring and hid the plants almost completely, I was worried that they would get crowded out and suffocate.
As it turns out, the hydrangeas love the shade that the loosestrife have provided and are putting on a lovely show in return.
The Penny Mac surprised me with beautiful blue poms.
The Woodlander and Nikko Blue are just starting to bud out, but I will get photos as soon as the flowers open more.
