Tickled Pink!

I'm so happy I'm tickled  pink!

 My Pinky Winky Hydrangea has actually turned pink for the first time!

I guess it is either just right conditions this year or more likely it just needed to get established.  I was lazy this year and didn't even fertilize. 

 This was it when I first planted it in 2010 

Little things like this make me so happy!

These Limelights are so huge this year.  They're so soft and fluffy!

 Last of the Blackeyed Susans -

These are ready for drying.  They'll be brown before I know it.

All the rain has greened up the drying grass and the Rose Of Sharon is blooming better than ever.  Last year I gave it a good trim to re-shape it. 

This has been a rewarding summer!  

 This is a video I took in July of the bumblebees collecting pollen from the 
Annabelle Hydrangeas
 For some reason the quality isn't as good as it should be but I don't know how to fix it.

Hello and welcome to my garden site. I hope you enjoy my garden.


  1. Liz, I love your beautiful hydrangeas. I'm not familiar with the Pinky Winky one--so pretty. I'm going to do a search at my garden center for this beauty. Once established, hydrangeas do well for me. Your bumblebees are happy diving into that gorgeous blossom. ♥

  2. beautiful hydrangea

  3. Oh, that is so pretty and love the color pink.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    The fairy garden is sweet too.

  4. Oh Liz, I am just moaning at the site of your gorgeous hydrangeas. OMG, they are just spectacular!! Mine are all so small so glad to see your pic of them a few years ago. I planted a little lime and two mop heads this year so it will take time. Thanks for sharing yours. Love them all.
