~Hydrangea paniculata 'PeeGee'~
There's a big one of these in my front yard here in Virginia - and the blooms have been hanging on forever... well, at least since I moved here in early August.
I'm experiencing garden withdrawal. I do have a lawn to mow here (oh joy... I don't mind mowing, I just don't really think lawns are good things). I have some mint, oregano, and chives. I even saw a hummingbird yesterday on some of the flowers I planted in the front right after I moved in.
But I have gone to see the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. And work is challenging and the environment is a good one. interesting stuff. I'm busy.
But what I really want is a day spent in the salt air, in my own garden - which I'll get to do in less than two weeks, when I go there for my first visit since relocating here for the temporary position. Yay! My garden will be a disaster, and I'm sure that there will be some big disappoints (aka plant deaths)... and snakes might have decided to take over since the Pointer Sisters haven't been around. But still. I can't wait.
