That's right just gotta have faith for the finish line!!!
Love the hydrangea, is that one of the ones that fades to a pretty dusty pink? Those are my favorites! Looks like such a pleasant back yard to relax in!
Very nice, is the Archie thing just in case you get a rouge storm or early storm? Looks like a couple of those bushes are gonna have to duck to get it there!!!Awesome, do you get any comment from your neighbors?fabulous flowers too!!!
Big Sur Holy Bud would make a fine Christmas tree, all frosty flowered...just add lights!
Thanks for stopping by RE and Nick. We usually get a wicked storm at least one the beginning of October. That is when they are in full-blown bloom and we sure don't need a hard soaking rain. So the cover keeps us dry. One year we didn't need it but all the other years we do. Bud throws a tarp or two with ropes hooked on them so we can just pull it on and off as needed. One year he came home from a trip to WV, got home in the middle of the night to a huge storm, he put it up and saved the day. The winds are so hard too, here. That BSHB does look like a Christmas tree.
It's a gentle place to land. It's nice to have a home far far away from the incendiary discourse of large, mainstream forums. Peace and bountiful harvests to all friendly garden gnomes! Thank you for curating this chill virtual arboretum.
