It occurred to me nowadays as I was filling up however yet another wheelbarrow total of mulch that I have been sharing some other gardening news on Instagram, but haven’t yet shared it on right here.
My hydrangeas are back, and they’re basically the prettiest issues I very own. Even prettier than Charlie, but that’s since she jumped my fence this morning and I’m mad at her, so she seems like problems to me instead (sort of like when she climbed on my roof).
All of the pine straw appears to be operating its magic on generating all of them bluer than final yr’s blooms (which I nonetheless loved), but I couldn’t be happier. Green ones are my favored colour of hydrangea, but I haven’t experimented with planting any of individuals yet. The blue ones still kick ass, although:
Also, minor identified truth: if you publish a image of blue hydrangeas, purple hydrangeas, or pink hydrangeas on Instagram, people will immediately inform you how to make them not that colour. Add sulfur! Add egg shells! Include coffee grounds! Add your toenail clippings! Okay, that last a single was fake and also gross, but you get the level. It’s sort of like every person telling you why you’re so sleepy on Thanksgiving, but rather of there currently being one purpose you’re in a food coma, there are 6 various ways to get there.
I consider at this level, I am 110% covered on how to carry out a specific colour on hydrangeas, but what I haven’t experimented with however is propagating them. I intend to do that subsequent (because who wouldn’t want even much more pictures to share of a lot more hydrangeas and get even a lot more suggestions about how to make them blue?), so I’m nevertheless taking guidance on that front. Especially after my historical past of killing something that grows from a seedling.
There are other flowers blooming all over my yard, so there is a good deal of color going on all over the place.
Ahem… not a great deal of weeding going on, however.
But, for this weekend, I think I’ll just stare a minor longer at these beauties and remind myself what previous function on this backyard as blossomed into perhaps that will get me to finish the beds quicker!
P.S. I meant to have the floating shelves perform-by-play in the laundry space ready this week, but they wound up needing another coat ahead of I could be done… and I suck at Google Sketchup. So, up coming week it is.
