Everything's coming up Hydrangeas!

Happy Father's Day and happy West Virginia Day! Lilo took her dad to the dog park today for some fun in the mercifully shaded park. Unfortunately she was ready to leave about two minutes before Kobe and his dad, Wellington Smith, arrived. Oops. Needless to say, I was not thrilled we left.

Lilo gave her dad a nice card, too.

Back to the Bungalow. Our tulips, azaleas and roses have come and gone, but we're still blooming. I planted some pink petunias a while agobeside the garage and they are still providing cheerful color in the yard. A few of these flowers have popped up, too. I think they are residual from last year's "open a packet of seeds and cross your fingers" fun.

We also have this little Salvia plant thriving beside the garage. It was a house-warming gift from our neighbors across the street last spring. We thought it died. But it came back!

Beside the house we have orange lilies blooming and the lilies-of-the-valley are getting ready to shine.

What I'm most excited about is the hydrangea bush. It is an odd thing ... it sits in the middle of our side yard. It's not the best spot and we've contemplated digging it up. I waited for it to bloom last year and it never did. So I pruned and talked to it this spring. And now it decided to show off. It's a wonderful shade of purple. There aren't that many blooms on it, but the ones there are enough to make me want to keep it. Lilo likes it, too.

What's blooming at your house?
