It's Fall in Alabama and the hydrangeas are on their last leg. This is the Limelight bush after I cut them, but right now is a great time to go out and save some for drying before they completely dry up and wither for the winter. I clipped off the leaves, cutting the stems long enough to group together. I actually did this about 2 weeks ago in October.
My other hydrangea, however is putting on a Fall show that's pretty spectacular. Guess that's why they call it Endless Summer!
It's November, people and she's still putting forth some beautiful buds.
And since we haven't had a frost yet, the impatiens are still going too.
I managed to clip several stems off this one too for drying. I'll show you what I end up doing with them when I get to that point too. If you happen to have some hydrangeas blooming (or know someone who does) get out there and harvest them before they are gone! They are so pretty to look at all year round when they're dried.
