It’s that time of year when everything in the garden is starting to fade.
Our Endless Summer Hydrangeas have transitioned from their vibrant, spring blues to the softer, summer shades of green. . .
We’ve been hot and dry this summer and it’s been a challenge to try to keep things watered.
My toad house looks like I feel with our August heat. . .
that summer seems Endless. ;)
I deadheaded and harvested some hydrangea blooms to encourage new flowers.
Endless Summer Hydrangeas usually put on a second flush of flowers, blooming right through pumpkin season until frost, which is typically mid-November for us. You wouldn’t normally think of pairing blue hydrangeas with pumpkins, but you can enjoy a ‘Just Because’ Arrangement, here.
I’m looking forward to raking season. . .
And cooler temperatures of fall.
There’s always a surprise or two in the garden. . .
Like a single clematis bloom appearing two months after its normal bloom time.
How’s your garden growing this summer?
