The hydrangeas are pretty this year: This is an oakleaf
...and this is a macrophylla.
Believe it or not, those are all on the same bush! I used to have a burn pile up the hill and it appears to have done some strange things with the PH of the soil. Such a beautiful mistake.
This is a Kalmia Latifolia (Mountain Laurel). I found three of them for seven dollars apiece on sale and just couldn't resist them. Looks like they are pretty happy (This pic was taken about a month ago). Don't you just love the buds? I think that I probably should have rotated that picture, but it still comes across, don't you think?

Isn't that just the way it works?
So what are y'all up to?
