Two things have just made me very happy in the garden. First is seeing these buds that have appeared on this Hydrangea. The area that this is planted in seems to have struggled so far this year...strange growth on the plants and distorted flowers (Aquilegia, Geraniums and Dahlia) and also invasions from blackfly which hit this really hard so I wasn't expecting any blooms! Happy days! 👍🏼😊

Last year mine did great, not so much this year, not much growth and spindly at that!! Some buds but not loads. Think she's been fighting with the Spirea next to her 😁

I think the non standard Hydrangea (i.e. Everything except mopheads and lacecaps) are seemingly quite temperamental! This one and my two Annabelles definitely are! @Jasonsparkes1

Loving the lime green. Lost a lace cap earlier this year in that snap frost. Also a couple are a bit straggly. At least they are still here 😀

This one starts off green, turns white and then fades to pink Pearl! Something for everyone! That's a shame about your lacecap 😔 but the others should recover and come back ok 👍🏼 @fuschia
