I know everyone has been waiting more then any winter in a long time to have Spring arrive.
All that other WHITE stuff
is just getting to be too much for everyone
and so I thought revisiting some
photos of white flowers and garden pieces would be a welcome sight.
This is our Annabelle Hydrangea that is in front of the porch on what George and I call the Johnney house.
I won’t bore you with the reason why we call it that.
Annabelle is one of the earliest white hydrangea’s to bloom but it also gets that
dried look much earlier.
I sometimes think I want to change it since it gets a little floppy.
I just learned there is a new variety of arborescens that won’t flop as much call Incrediball.
Funny name……we’ll have to see if the claim is true and if it’s “incredible”
This is a hydrangea on the other side of the porch that has been there for about 20yrs now. I’d like to tell you
I know exactly which one it is but all I can tell you is that it’s either
Summer beauty, Pink Beauty or All Summer Beauty.
See I don’t know everything…
This crazy hydrangea has bloomed every color imaginable in the almost 20yrs it has been here too.
This particular year it was almost white with a hint of blue.
Some years it’s been pink, blue and white all at the same time.
I remember taking this picture 2 yrs ago at night after a rain.
Not really a good time to take pictures. Not so much because it’s wet….that never bothers me.
The quality is not there but I just love lily of the valley. So many hate it because it
gets a little out of control. People always tell me I’m welcome to come dig it out of their gardens.
I politely decline.
A concrete finial that we’ve had kicking around for some years now. We’ve had the top kicking around
just as long. As a matter of fact my friend Paula has seen it on a shelf by my counter
and picked it up curiously wondering what she could do with it.
It probably will never get repaired. The finial sits by where the
kitties get fed.
I’d like to think they like it there and enjoy having something to rub up on….
