I planted two new hydrangeas today!!! (they are on the back side of the garage which faces the house, I'm standing on the deck when I took the second picture) Hopefully they get enough sun, but not too much. This spot starts getting sun about Noon... I'm going to pay attention today and see when the shade starts covering it so I have an idea of the amount of direct sunlight it gets.
It is an Endless Summer Hydrangea: the tag says macrophylla 'Bailmer', whatever that means. The tag says it has pink blooms in alkaline soils and blue blooms in acidic soils. I can't wait to see them!!
Oh and you can see how our sod isn't doing so great in the pictures, that's a little disappointing. You can kinda see where we pulled up the dead parts -we laid grass seed in those areas, last week.
Oh and the tulips/lilacs on the left side of where the hydrangeas are were actually planted before us, it was a nice surprise to see them come up so we laid our leftover mulch in the area, in the fall I'll plant some more bulbs and maybe get a lot in that area so I can have some nice flowers to cut and keep in the house next spring :-)
