Thursday Garden Stroll

Hi friends! Well things have settled down and returned to normal here, now that our Moms are back home and back to work. Our garden grew during the week they were gone, so come on and take a look!





The first thing our Moms noticed when they came home last Saturday was that our Hydrangea had fully bloomed. This is our first Hydrangea and we really love it. It's in a small container, we think Mom will transplant it into a larger container in hopes of it becoming a bigger plant with more blossoms next season. 



Our Hibiscus is also doing great this year. Mom has been feeding it with Liquid Kelp (she has gone completely organic this year, no more "Miracle Grow") and it has just taken off. 



The "Blue Ensign" Morning Glories are doing great too. We have Cosmos and Zinnias that are just about ready to bloom, so we hope to show those to you next week. 




We wanted to show you this cool planter that our Grandmother in Indiana has. Do you see that it's a big bird? Grandmother likes some whimsey in her garden. 



Here's one of our Grandmother's FIVE Hydrangea bushes! Now you can see why our Mom wants to transplant our Hydrangea into a bigger container. She aspires to have one as beautiful as this. 



Here is our blogMom with her Mom. Our Grandmother is 86 years old, can you believe it? She is the reason why our Mom loves to garden so much. We love you Grandmother!



Thanks for strolling with us today friends! We hope all of you (including our Grandmother in Indiana) are staying cool in the  heat wave we are having throughout much of the US. Don't forget to water your garden!


xoxo, Raymond

  8. We love those blue morning glories and the great picture of your BlogMom and your Grandmother. They are even prettier than the flowers!

    Oh, and by the way, thanks for the dose of tough love. Yeah, I need to Mancat Up--those ladycats are a dime a dozen, right? Nothing to get all mushy-headed over. Whew--thanks guys. I needed that. I think I'm all better now.

  10. YA! Cos them Indiana folks have stuff like HUMIDITY and actually get RAIN that's why the hydrangeas are so awesome! HYDRA = WATER. Something I don't get in my yard so my pathetic little 8 inch hydrangea just looks at me like 'WHAT?' LOLOL You is having great luck with yours!!! I am totally envious! And I love garden sculpture things. That's what makes having a garden so much fun! (except the danged watering e.v.e.r.y. day. Can't seem to do that alla time.
