Will we made it back Sunday from our vacation week in the beautiful state of Virginia.
A posting was delayed because I needed a few days vacation from being on vacation. LOL! This old girl cannot take it like she use to.
Running the whole week wore me out.
And I had to take a day just to sort out all of the pictures.
We had a lovely time and saw many interesting points of interest and gardens in Virginia.
What really grabbed my attention was all of the blue blooms on the ‘Nikko’ hydrangea. After such a dismal display last year it has certainly made up for it this year. It is just loaded with big blue balls of blooms.
And it was quite a surprise to see this volunteer poppy blooming. Those of you who have read my blog over the years have heard about my frustration in getting poppy seeds to start for me in the garden. Believe me I have tried and tried and wasted more seed.
So I decided to just buy a poppy and give up on the seeds. So what happens? This one pops up from out of the blue. LOL! Isn’t that always the way of things.
I thought about the garden many times while we were on vacation last week. Wondering what was blooming and if number one son had watered the containers. Oh, like you don’t. LOL! Gardeners and their gardens. But it went on without me finishing the blooms of most of the roses and irises but many more to take their place had started blooming without me. How rude! LOL!
After spending a little time yesterday dead heading the roses and a few other plants, pulling some weeds, tying up the tomato plants, tidying up in general, and watering the containers I felt much better and rested from the vacation week.
Everyone have a wonderful week and..
