I enjoy this Garden Bloggers Bloom Day the most because it is the anniversary of the first blog post I ever made. That was three years ago. Carol who hosts Garden Bloggers Bloom Day here was most encouraging to me to start a blog. I thank Carol for this encouragement because blogging has certainly imporved my gardening skills. Learning from generous encouraging garden bloggers in the world. I do mean all over the world.
Cheryl another blogger I was fortunate enough to meet this summer. This hydrangea is an ever bloomer named Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy'. I am impressed by its will to live and bloom in this drought. Of course I am keeping it watered since it just arrived here.
