Indian Summer?

 Wednesday was the first day of Astrological Autumn. But you would never kow it by looking around. It has remained very hot, and things are now starting to re-bloom! Climate change? Here is our Hydrangea now.




And here is our liliac bush, just starting to bloom AGAIN! Not that I'm complaining; I really miss the flowers and green grass in the dark of winter.


The rest are from around the neighborhood.


A Hibiscus, one of many still in full bloom.


The Moonflower bush.

Looks like summer isn't ready to turn things over to fall just yet in your area. Your hydrangea are very pretty. Mine have all faded and are looking pretty droopy

Love the colors in your yard & around your neighborhood.

Beautiful hydrangea. Your garden is filled with beautiful flowers. Looking at them sure cheers us up.

that is so very true about needing an iron back with a hinge. these are beautiful and now you know what it is like to live here in FL where things grow year round, they bloom and drop and bloom and drop and never go into winter hibernation..

Good lordy, Ginny... it looks like spring in your neck of the woods. Things are dying off rapidly here in northern-most Indiana. Enjoy your scenery!! ~Andrea xoxoxo

So you have to plant that blue hydrangea in special soil to keep it blue?

We've had a couple of very cool nights (low 40s), but the days have been very mild. It's supposed to get warmer again.
