This lovely Hydrangea has a story to tell. Given to me in April 2009 after surgery it's blooms were dark blue and I planted it beside the house. Evidently, it was the wrong place and it completely died down twice...I was ready to toss it when I decided to try once more...moved it to the other side of the yard and planted it in a large cement pot I had....well, it likes it's new home. This is what I found when we got back from vacation!!! Now her new look is pink blooms!
We spent the night in Bakersfield with Don's cousin and her "Donut" peach tree was so heavy with fruit, two limbs broke.
So sad to see the limbs breaking...but what a crop of peaches it's producing. That San Joaquin Valley produces a lot of food and fruit.
Donut peaches look like someone "squashed" them, but oh how sweet that white meat is. Can't wait to have them sliced over ice cream. Perfect timing for our Father's Day BBQ tomorrow.
It's really good to be home!
