I have enjoyed your garden, especially the hydrangea. I can't get them to grow. What am I doing wrong?

What a beautiful garden. I have light blue hydrangeas too. You have the nice pink one too.

Your hydrangeas are beautiful. Most of mine are almost done blooming. Bugs really love sweet potato vines don't they?

What a beautiful garden! Thanks for sharing.

Great shots of your garden, I love your collection of watering cans.

Your hydrangeas are the pretties I have seen. I didn't know you could get blue and pink on one bush! Gorgeous! Love all your blooms!

love your garden! So pretty and I have those little buggers here too! They got here a couple days ago, but not as bad as they usually are.
I need to weed again- never ending battle, but am trying to get a sinus headache, which being in the weeds is the last thing I need.
Went to Ashmore just before lunch the I&I Deli- the Ashmore Road is a mess, so we turned were the old salvage yard used to be coming back and saw more weeds and horses!
If you have to come up around here for anything, use 5th street.

Hi Ann,
Thanks so much for your recent visit. I appreciate your kind words and am thrilled to now be able to visit your lovely blog. I knew as soon as I saw the header picture that I was going to like it here. Your gardens are just beautiful and I love your little garden cottage with the vintage watering cans lined up next to it. Adorable!

Your garden is so lovely Ann!
I am crazy about the photo on your blog's masthead. Such a great view.
Loving your collection of galvanized watering cans. What is it about that metal that makes me crave it!
(The farmgirl in me I think!)
So nice to find you today.
