From Our Yard - Outdoor Wednesday

I love to look across the road to this
grove of trees. The cows like to find
shade here.



My baby pink hydrangea.
This was a sympathy gift
when Warren's Dad passed away.
It came from his employer.
I am sooo happy that it survived
the move from pot to garden.



The Bee Balm is crowding it somewhat
so I need to move something.
I'll figure it out early next
Spring...



And then there are Mikey's massive
blue hydrangea flower heads...




This is only its second year
here in Mikey's Flower Bed,
but the flowers don't seem to
know how young they are.



Just as our chihuahua, Chloe, has the
attitude of a very large dog, these flowers
have the attitude of a large
hydrangea bush.
So full and sure of themselves.

Hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

I love your own quote "these flowers have the attitude of a large hydrangea bush.
So full and sure of themselves." Excellent job on your photographs, your own quote and having a green thumb besides.

Hi Becky! Thank you for the kind comment you left on Tracy's interview. It was a pleasure to focus on someone so kind and talented. She made it so easy with such heartfelt answers.

I love your photo of the cows under the trees! I think I'd like to relax there, too, surrounded by the green.

Happy to meet you!

Your hydrangeas are amazing, wonderful colors. . .I have tried growing some in our yard but I think we may be in the wrong zone for those beauties!

Beautiful...gotta love a garden that thinks its top dog. I have been looking up a lot of plant information of late. Looks as if I'll be doing a lot of transplanting come autumn. Everything has just become overcrowded. Fine last year. This year a mess.

Regina said...

Becky, I love your hydrangeas! I am such a fan of them - and even bought a few hydrangeas for the first time this year. I hope they do well. Thanks so much for your kind comments on the patio. I am posting better pictures of it tonight for the Tablescape Thursday post at Susan's and also on Monday for Met Monday. With the sand in - it really took on a new look. Older, better - just love it. Talk soon,
A
