Day 213

pretty flowers in the garden light up my life

The two vanilla strawberry hydrangeas are in full bloom in their FIRST year!

Up close you can tell that the bottom petals are turning pink.

Aren't roses the prettiest?

I used to always have trouble growing roses because of the deer chomping them all. Not now!

Drimys Lanceolata or Tasmanian Pepper Bush is that tall plant and it has red stems and the new leaves appear coppery-red and later turn light green. I thought it would have tiny white flowers by now. Oops. Maybe they will sill appear, since there should be black berries replacing the flowers in the fall.
Yup, just a simple container.

This container was a bit bigger so I stuffed it with plants.
