Visiting the Lake Cottage

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a nice 4th of July.  After the breast cancer cruise we came to the lake for a little relaxation and gardening.

Albert has had a wonderful time.  We have taken him swimming almost daily, but we had to pass a few times because over the holiday weekend there’s been too many people.  He was so upset… I drove him down on his golf cart and someone was fishing where he always goes swimming, he looked at me and then at them…as if to say, why?

I spent a day just weeding my garden.

The Hydrangea bushes are huge this year.  I think it’s because we have had so much rain. 

I usually try to dry some of them this time of year so they will have this beautiful blue color, but this fall they will be a richer color with more greens and purples.

Last October (10/16/12) I did a post on how to start Hydrangea’s from the mother plant, but for some reason I couldn’t get this link to work. So if you are interested in seeing how I transplant them,  go to my posts and type in this date and it should come up. 

The one above is one of the new one’s I planted last fall.  You can see it’s blooming and it’s a new plant.  They’re so easy to transplant.

I hope each of you are having a good summer where ever you are and thank you so much for stopping by.

Take care and I will see you soon!

Good Morning Mary, What a shame Albert could not swim in his favourite spot..... those pesky humans get everywhere!!
Like you, I loved spending time weeding the garden. Do you know I have never rooted hydrangeas so I am going to visit the link telling me how to do it, as I love the flower heads, they are so lovely. Mine are just in bud at the moment, but we are having some glorious weather at the moment, so plants which have been delayed due to the previous bad weather will have a chance to catch up.
Best Wishes
Daphne
