Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Thanks Jane. The pale new growth is such a contrast to the dark leathery leaves. 😀 @pelly

#foliagefriday The leaves are as soft as velvet when they’re young but become almost leathery in the autumn. #hydrangea #oakleafhydrangea #deciduous #jacarandashadyview #mygardentoday 💚

They’re interesting, Celina, but slow! I’ve never catalogued the flowers, which probably means they’re rather insignificant, although I can’t honestly remember! 😂😂 I must remember to take more notice of it this year and to photograph its progress 🤞 @cee

What position is yours in? Mine are under trees and don’t look nearly this good! I was hoping to grow gigantic NJ-style specimens! 🙄

This one is on the shady side of the garden near the Acer. It was quite small to begin with but it’s slowly getting more robust 💚 @mulberry
