Okay, I know that technically it's still two more weeks until Fall, but every time I look at my Hydrangeas I'm reminded that it's on it's way. The large blooms on my Limelight Hydrangeas are starting to turn dusty pink with the cool weather. It's always a pretty transition.
Also, I'm happy to say that my rose bushes that were planted this Spring (David Austin's Winchester Cathedral) have taken to their new homes quite nicely.
They have continued to bloom throughout the summer months and have nearly tripled in size. Each week a new bud appears or another unfolds into a creamy, fragrant bloom.
I will be keeping my eye out for a few more next Spring, possibly of a different variety.
My Limelights are now 6 feet tall with gigantic blooms.
They turn a pretty pink ombre as Summer ends.
