Summer Flower Show & Happy 1st Birthday Dear Blog!

Summer flowers are in full bloom, they are flowering a little later than last year. Maybe cold wet May-June is to blame. 


(Above) Hydrangea – Nature own litmus paper. Hydrangea will bloom blue if soil is acidic or else red-pink if it’s alkaline. On my recent trip to eastern Washington – Walla Walla side , I saw white hydrangea – it’s bred differently and not indicative of soil PH.


(Above) Unknown – Please help me identify.
It’s growing tall up, 5-6 foot and bearing pink-purple flowers up on top.
