I don’t mind telling you, I’m a fool for hydrangea. So far, I only have four varieties. They’re all young plants, ergo small but with loving care maybe they’ll grow to their full potential. The Annabellas grew fastest and bloomed first. Now that they’re rapidly fading, the others are coming into their own.



Pinky Winky

I thought I’d also add some others:

Gloriosa Daisy

Giant White Fleece Flower. Not yet giant and the fleece flower hasn’t matured yet but, hey, it’s a start.

I’m just glad that most things survived the drought but the shasta daisies suffered. Once they droop their petals, there’s no coming back. Oh, some of them had buds. Those that didn’t dry up were left.
