From my kitchen sink I look out at my back yard and admire the result of all the work I've put in up to this point.
Each time I look out, my gaze is drawn to one corner. The group of plants that sit here beneath the cherry blossom tree make up my favorite view.
I'm especially amazed by the size of the blooms on this mophead hydrangea.
As if one giant bloom weren't enough, this baby's loaded with several.
The work involved in this gardening gig is endless, but then, so are the rewards.
