Hydrangeas in Shade and Sun

This hydrangea bush was in Joan’s garden when she moved into her home in 1973. She’s done nothing to feed it.

“The name hydrangea comes from the Greek words “hydor” meaning water and “angos” meaning vessel. Which together roughly translate to “water barrel”. This is because of the fact that hydrangeas are notorious for needing lots of water and the cup shaped flowers. The name, Hortensia, is a Latin version of the French word Hortense.” From Plant Addicts website

Climbs trellises and walls with ease. “There are over 300 species with the Ranunculaceae -buttercup family.” This one is from my friend Joan’s garden. There’s a very popular sweater knitting pattern Ranunculus designed by Midori Hirose.

The black line near the center is a bit of bird seed that fell down from the feeder.

Inniswood Metro Garden

Inniswood Metro Garden is in Westerville Ohio.

It was a beautiful Spring day to explore the park with Laura and Charlie.

Two sisters, Grace and Mary Innis, donated their 37 acre estate and there’s a Sisters’ Garden dedicated to their memory. Either the treehouse or the brick walled Secret Garden might have been Charlie’s favorite place to play.
