I've had to put my flower gardens on the back burner as an indulgance, rather than some of the more pressing things in life. The vegetable garden is our sustenance, which has had it's importance highlighted with fires and floods cutting of access to supplies for extended periods of time. I was reluctant to take too many flower garden photos, as they all include weeds and dead heading being needed. However, I did take a few. This one was today. It is doing very well. It is a Northern Hyrdrangea. I was told also called a Snow Ball. It doesn't always make it through winter and sometimes has to reinvent itself every summer. This year, it seems happy. I think the extreme amount of snow may have given it extra insulation. It is the largest blooms I've had. The pink one is a hybrid in recognition of Breast Cancer Survivors. It is in my late best friend's memory garden, and is also having a wonderful year. Next year I will plan on some caging.
