Climbing Hydrangeas First Year in Bloom
One of the Master Gardeners in my husband's group gave us two of these plants probably about 10 years ago and they never bloomed. This was the first year and the other one still hasn't bloomed.
Climbing Hydrangea in Bloom
Five flowers this year.
Lots of Holly Berries This Winter
We lost 3 of our 4 holly trees in the Spring and were sad because of how much the birds loved those trees. We can't complain since we have lots of holly bushes on the property and they seem to have doubled production this year. The trees were easier for the birds to fly in and out of. Holy leaves are prickly. The bushes are also not in front of our breakfast room windows in the back nor the dining room windows on the front of the house so we won't be easily seeing the Cedar Waxwings and Robins when they arrive late in Winter.
