On Saturday I told Jeff that I was going to the garden store to buy a hydranga plant. I am being a stubborn soul and am planting one anyway even though everyone tell me they won't grow here (then why the heck are they selling them here!!) I have seen them grow closer in the older part of town so I am not giving up yet.
I came home with the back of his truck full, chuck full!

We spent the day planting
8 boxwoods
2 hydryanga plants
2 Wisteria vines
2 honeysuckes
1 yellow knockout rose bush
2 trumpet vines
2 pink flowering perrinals

Jeff said I am not allowed to take his truck to the garden center anymore.

So guess what I did.

I ordered some plants online!
How awesome are these Pink daylilies!

They grow like crazy here but there are all in yellow and I found pink!

Have you ever seen pink daylilies?

Good luck with the Hydrangea. If anyone can make it grow it's you!

I miss my hydrangeas from the Pacific Northwest!!! Perhaps if you pick the best spot in the yard they will thrive!! Good luck!

I love that you continued your plant shopping online! ha!!!

I haven't seen pink daylillies!

haha, that is funny. We just bought our first house and I've been threatened with getting the credit cards taken away. Me, Lowes, Home Depot, and Big Lots have become good friends. Super pretty flowers!
