Newest plant addition to the Garden...

A beautiful Limelight Hydrangea!

I'll be planting her today. She'll be replacing my "I ♥ Garden" stepping stone in the header bed allowing plenty of room for the silver frost butterfly bush to continue to grow and thrive. This limelight hydrangea isn't like some hydrangeas that are effected by the soil's pH. It will produce these beautiful light green, bright white blossoms up into the fall; then, the stems begin to change color and  the blossoms turn to those beautiful shades of light green mixed with the softest pastel pink! I'm hoping to harvest and dry a few a blooms for filling a basket before the blooms turn brown and wither away.

You have got a nice garden out there. I think a connection with plants means a connection with the nature itself.
