    My…this looks lovely. I love using cracked concrete, you were fortunate to have so much of it. Lucky you. Your plantings are beautiful, the clematis are going to be so amazing climbing up those posts ~ please post them when they bloom.

    Your hydrangeas are gorgeous–I don’t have any now, but I did in our old house, and I always saved some to dry and use in a vase on my mantle.

    Everything looks wonderful, but 3 weeks away, spent in South Carolina…I wonder what I will come back to at home. DH has texted me some pictures of our pink hydrangea that is finally looking gorgeous, the white one was putting flowers on when I left a week ago. I got a blue one from my mom this year. We cut ours back after they are done. I live in zone 9b I believe, coastal California. Plus mine are in big pots and are on the east side of the house.

    Your Gardens are beautiful … we planted 25 hydrangea plants at the end of fall last year .. this year they are still small … but providing lots of flowers … hoping over the next couple of years that they grow much larger. Do you cut them back for winter? xo HHL

    HHL- If they are the “Endless Summer” hydrangea, we cut them all back in early spring and we get blooms on all the new growth. If they are the older varieties, I just cut off the blooms from the previous year and trim a little off the non-blooming stems, because they will bloom on the old growth.

    Allys grandma- I wish I had some pink ones, but our soil is acidic, so they all turn blue. I do have some white ones I like and I’ve read there are new pink varieties that stay pink no matter the soil that I’m going to look into. Hope your garden looks good when you return from your trip!

    I love hydrangeas. I’m hoping to grow some in pots next year.

    Thanks for the “party”. I’m inspired each week!

    Jami, it looks really terrific! I have a similar issue with what to plant under the cedar trees in front of the house… it is my project for fall/spring; hopefully I’ll have something fun to post next summer.

    Your garden is so pretty and yes the yellow of your house as a backdrop looks great!
