The Rewards of Gardening

People sometimes ask why do you spend so much time outside?  Miss Mophead hydrangea is one reason.

Last year, Miss Mophead produced two blooms!  Look what she is sharing this year.

Miss Oak Leaf is so laden with blooms I had to get a stick to support her.

Miss Rain Lily rewards with an abundance of blooms after a rain.

The first blooms of buddleia (butterfly bush)

The color is going to be fabulous.  The rewards of gardening.


  1. Absolutely beautiful. Is there any place as pretty as a garden in the spring, especially after a rain? Your Hydrangea is such a pretty color. I am about ready to give up on mine. The leaves are beautiful, but last year, I had ONE flower only. I am hoping it does something this season.
    Oh, that pink lily! I have never seen one like it before!! I will have to be on the lookout, as I like to add at least one new lily per season..all of your stuff is beautiful.
