IN THE FIELD: Monday Morning Delights

August 13, 2012 20 comments

This past week, substantial storms blew through the area at dusk and late at night. We finally got much needed rain. Plants and trees have perked up, now that their thirst has been quenched.

This morning we left the house on our daily excursion with the dogs, and were captured by the sight of our Limelight Hydrangeas blooming in front of our house. We have been observing this particular shrub as it struggled through the heat of the summer. Over the last three days it transformed from flower buds beginning to open, to full blown splendor.

There must be some kind of bionic growth and bloom fertilizer associated with heavy thunderstorms.
