What's Blooming

Hello! I thought to start, I would show you what is blooming in my garden right now. Of course we have to start with a morning glory!

I am not a very good photographer, but can you make out the bumble bee in the Cinderella pumpkin blossom?

The hydrangea the kids got me for Mother's Day last year is doing well. The three that I bought seven years ago from a nursery, are toast.

The gardenias were beautiful this year. I'm not sure why, but I have noticed that everyone's seemed to be very prolific and gorgeous. After this round of blooms, they will bloom a couple more times before frost.

So what are you doing that's different with this hydrangea? I have one that's struggling in this heat and I don't know if it's the location, not enough water, or what. Any suggestions?

Hi blueccbug! Thanks for stopping by. I have this hydrangea on the northside of the house where it gets short periods of dappled sunlight. Also, I planted it with lots of peat and mulched heavily. I water it A LOT!
