THE EVENT OF THE YEAR FOR GARDEN BLOGGERS
Brought to You by DesignSherpa, the Organizers of Design Bloggers Conference now entering its fourth successful year!
As the buds appear on our hydrangeas, it must be time for the Garden Tour! We were blessed with no late freeze this year so the flowers should be bursting forth soon. 'Endless Summer' has been popping out all over Atlanta, as has 'Annabelle'. I was late in dead heading faded flowers, and had to push through the new growth to cut out all of my dead branches, of which I had many.
SAVE THE DATE! Saturday, June 8th is the American Hydrangea Society's 19th Annual Garden Tour
Greetings from pollen-covered Atlanta! The buds are popping on hydrangeas all through the city and suburbs and gardeners everywhere are cleaning up their beds and getting ready for spring planting.
