Hydrangeas and Spring Time at the Lake House

Last year, my husband was given some cuttings of hydrangeas from a friend across the lake.  I can't believe how healthy they are already, and that they are blooming.  I don't know if these will change colors or not.  I don't think the white ones do, but I'm not sure of the exact name of these, so I'll just have to wait and see what happens.  I'd love to have some that I could play with the color on by changing the soil's pH.  But at any rate, I'm just so happy to have any at all.

We arrived here on Monday, and the first thing I saw was this single bloom on a bush beside the back steps.

Then after bringing everything inside (groceries), we went to the front porch, and the other bush is full of blooms.

Spring here is so pretty, and comes several weeks earlier than at our home in the Northern end of the state.

I love this spot in our yard, the patina of the old bird bath, and the little spring time flag.  All the rain and warm temps have made the entire yard so lush and green.

I added another touch of spring with the wreath I made here a year or more ago.

There's nothing like springtime here, before the heat really sets in.  We are close to both Florida and Alabama, so it can get really hot here, but right now, it is very pleasant, and wonderful to sit on the porch and enjoy the quiet.
