Now that it is October (duh) the trees are turning, leaves are beginning to fall, and the growing season is ending. My hydrangeas must not know this.
I have waited all summer for blooms. Usually by June I am cutting the blossoms for glorious flowers to enjoy indoors. By September I am cutting and drying blossoms to keep. Not. this. year.
Nada a bloom. Lots of growth--just no blossoms. Until now. October. Frost is coming soon.
This is what I see now:
Blooms--oh so tiny. Not just one. Several.
But, will they have time?
I have my doubts.
Should I tell them they have waited a little too long to put on their show?
