Grandiflora view immediately looking over my left shoulder sitting on our back step. Much better view than watching Gryphon go pee!

OMG I'm in love with that Hydrangea! Must say I've not seen such a specimen in a long long time. Nature's wonderful soil pH tester. hahaha

And the Shasta Daisies and the Phlox!

*drool*

My neighbor when he was alive, (rest his sole) made me a new plant from a cutting from his hydrangea. Not quite sure how old their bushes are but we've been in our house for over 16 years!

They really are so big and fluffy looking! I have them in their own special spot specifically for the high PH

The hydrangeas are absolutely gorgeous! Love the Pink Parfait phlox and the roses, too!
