Here's a Nikko Blue Hydrangea, but I can't get the darn thing to bloom blue! I've added acidic fertilizer faithfully, but they're beautiful in pink too.

Sadly I am not in your class but just about anything grows here. I only wish I had taken pics of my rhododendron and wisteria to share with you as they were simply gorgeous.

Thank you so much for kind comments and words of encouragement.

Jacobite,

The hibiscus is so elegant, my first trip to a tropical locale was Hawaii, they bloomed profusely everywhere you looked.

I love roses, but only have the carpet roses and have had such a time this year with blackspot, earwigs and spiders. Have to continuously trim off the dead blooms to keep them blooming.

I'm so glad I'm not the only resident gardener!

Jacobite, your pics are gorgeous! I love lilies, but those are particularly beautiful. I heard, but don't quote me, that deer don't like reds and oranges so be thankful for that. A friend of mine has trouble at her cottage with the deer eating everything, and she mentioned the colour preference.

Why do deer eat my stargazer lilles but leave the orange?

False spirea, very invasive, sends shoots up all over the place! But the blooms are pretty.

Here's a pic of hostas in bloom, many varieties blooming at different times, but all bloom a lovely mauve flower.

Now you know why I only go to the Biltmore for dinner at the Winery Bistro!

That picture is very typical of those I sit and watch either off my dock or boat frequently . . .come south, bring a bottle of Biltmore wine and your favorite lady and be my guest.

Hi Jaco, me thinks you took a 'bite' out of your homeland, you dont get sun set like that in the Carolinas, by the way im just up the road from you and my ancestors are Hunters,

Here's a pic of the climatis seed heads, I posted pics of those glorious purple climatis further down on this thread, but once they've bloomed, you get this wonderful ball left behind.

Hi Jacobite! - Look forward to seeing your pics! Believe it or not, prior to getting into gardening I was the least likely green thumb going, I killed everything lol!
