Rose of Sharon "Blue Satin" reached its peak bloom a couple of weeks ago. It's still going strong.
This DIY Petunia flower basket in a whisky barrel planter is a fearless performer under heat. Regular daily watering was all it took to be rewarded with endless blooms.
Remember this little Rhododendron bush in a planter back in May?
It's now unstoppable in our backyard after I transplanted it to our garden. Some plants are not meant to be kept in a pot. I would say Rhododendron is definitely one of them.
And of course these two Limelight Hydrangea bushes in my backyard - they are in full bloom almost the same time as they did last year. Their showstopper flowers will carry on until late fall when they fade into a pretty shade of pink.
These hydrangea bushes are now around 7.5 feet tall. They can grow up to 10 feet at maturity.

The picture below is from the same bush last year. If you are an impatient gardener me, you would definitely want to give this specimen a try. Check out this post for tips to grow them.

Have you been to H&M Home lately? I happened to be there on our wedding anniversary, and I immediately picked the "I know" mug - my husband was the lucky one to keep the other. I will be back to write about our recent trip to the store, and ELTE.
