I love hydrangeas, so I was sad when our bushes seem to have died. They looked like dead sticks sticking out of the ground. But, a few weeks ago, little green buds started coming out of the tops of the sticks. It was a neat image of rebirth and spring growth. I can't wait until the flowers come in!
The people who rented our house before us liked Azaleas. REALLY liked azaleas. They put multiple colors in stripes in front of our house. I wish they had just planted one color instead of a weird splattering of them, but they are pretty. We have all kinds of springy things coming up and in and out. Despite the constant sneezing, I am enjoying the scenery.
