Garden Highlights

I planted these hydrangea trees last year and they are going great right now. The only downside to them is that I planted them on the southern border between our property and our neighbor's yard. So, they tilt towards the sun coming from their yard which gives our neighbors a great view of them but we see the less desireable backside of them from our deck.

But that's a minor downside for a tree with such a long plentiful bloom. The blooms are white now and will turn pink over the next few weeks. Then after the first frost in late September, the blooms will turn a light tan as they die for the winter.
