Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

I've done a little work in my yard this weekend.  At long last, I have planted some hydrangeas.

The one on the left is Incrediball Hydrangea and on the right is Endless Summer.  These are on the north side of my house, so they receive morning sun and shade for most of the day.  According to my nursery, this is exactly what hydrangeas like.  So I'm hoping they will bloom and flourish in their new home.

I also did a little work on the planter on my porch.  This picture is from last summer.

It's okay, but I decided that a little more color would make a nice, welcoming statement.  So a can of spray paint later, and...

I am loving my "new" planter!

Wishing you a safe and Happy Independence Day!
