I’ve had this Hydrangea shrub for many years. I admit to having transplanted it several times due to the shade that keeps appearing every couple of years. Some caused by my trees and shrubs sprouting up in the vicinity and once due to a neighbor planting several very large privacy shrubs near his fence line. Making up for lost time, it not only decided to bloom all the colors of the rainbow on one shrub. Nice feat when you consider that the Hydrangea’s color is determined by the PH balance of its soil.

War is a relic of our Neanderthal ways.
We all know better and have evolved a bit since then, but instead of stopping this stupidity we use any technical advancements for more diabolical weaponry.

I love all the birds and animals in my yard every summer. Had to completely give up on the vegetable garden this year, but did get a few red and black raspberries. Enjoy the little chipmunk I bated with a couple of the berries.

Another Artist Retreat!
Like artists need a place to create! We can create anywhere when we stop procrastinating.
I have just inherited my family’s estate in the Toronto countryside and have decided to turn the home and the many acres surrounding it to an artist retreat! The gardens won’t be a problem, they just need to be loved back into existence, but the house is another story. The nice thing is I will be able to provide some jobs among the locals fixing it up, not to mention office help and a permanent grounds keeper.
Keep your eyes peeled for updates!
