Flowers in Bloom

Todays I'm showing off my flowers in bloom.

I have a shady property. For years I tried to fight nature and grow roses, which need a lot of sunlight. A few years ago, after discovering deer feasting on my Sonia roses, I gave them away and planted hydrangeas, which like shade. I have one climbing rose in a sunny corner that started as a tiny cane and now covers the trellis. Soon my lavender and black-eyed Susans will be in full-bloom, then my later-blooming hydrangea will open. I should have flowers pretty much until November. Enjoy!

Those are beautiful. I've been admiring the variety of hydrangea bushes that I've seen lately. I think I am now craving one of my own.
