It's a Jungle Out There

We've had so much rain along with some hot weather and intermittent sun.  
That mixture makes for a JUNGLE!!

My brick path through my front garden is disappearing!  I think I will have to go out there with my hedge trimmers and just take it back!!

This hydrangea is so big that it just flops when it gets flowers on it.  Does anyone know what to do about that?  Can you divide hydrangeas??

Look how cute my little sun flower is.  I raised them from seed but I had intended on having big tall ones but it seems I bought the wrong seed.

My little vegetable garden.  I really like the raised bed!  Next year, I want two more.

This clematis climbs all over everything.  The rain knocked a lot of the blossoms off.

My smoke tree is a smokin'!!!!

I got this cute bird bath at TSC  and put it out yesterday to replace my broken one.

Happy Summer!



  1. Overgrown or not, everything looks so lush! Vegetables look great too. Love the bird bath.

  2. Unfortunately, I don't think you can divide hydrangeas as they are a shrub, not a perennial. I would rig a staking system with inconspicuous twine criss crossing so the very nature of the structure of the system supports the heavy nodding heads without being obvious. Good luck. I'd love to know what you decide upon.

  3. That smoke tree is different, I never seen one before. I have never had success with hydrangeas but my parents had them growing and they would divide them and cut them right back and they were very healthy and lots of flowers.
