Busy, Beautiful Summer

Well, every summer is busy around here...but this one seems just a bit more so! And because we had plenty of rain this spring and many hot, sunny days since, the plants are VERY happy in my yard! However, we still live in a woods, and with the extra moisture there seems to be an abundance of leaves on the trees this year...allowing even less sunlight than usual to filter through! flowering plants refuse to bloom! Lots of lovely greenery...not so many flowers. But at my sister's in Wisconsin there is just the right amount of BOTH rain and sunshine. All the way around the house she has things blooming! Here are a few photos of her hydrangeas on the north side of the house...the front. Beautiful!

I love the variety of the shades of greens and whites! And the water droplets on the leaves was an added bonus, left over from the morning shower we had.
