Spring Plantings...I think?

Hi everyone,

 I was eager to write a post about the hydrangeas that I planted last weekend so I took some photos of the two plants that I bought and planted (really husband was the one who actually planted them, I supervised) LOL. Anyway, they look so lovely and perky but alas it appears that we may be in for a possible frost :-( (32 degrees) tomorrow night. So, I will dutifully cover the hydrangeas and my ferns who have just started to grow new fronds to keep them from freezing.

 It was a dreary, cloudy day with intermittent rain and a good day to tackle some cleaning chores so I immersed myself in cleaning blinds and washing curtains and inside windows so that when spring does arrive for good I'll be ready to enjoy the warm, breezy, sunny weather. I hope all of you are well and if living in areas that are cold and snowy keeping busy waiting for the weather to break.

 One last thing...I thought I was going to be able to share with you a recipe for an Apple Tarte Tartin but my first experience with making one didn't turn out AT ALL. LOL It was a disaster...except for the crust which I made in my food processor, it turned out delicious. So, now that I know what I did wrong I will attempt it again or better yet, maybe I'd better stick with baking an apple cobbler. Sigh...

I hope these photos bring a bit of sun and warmth to all of you.


  1. Your Hydrangeas are beautiful ... I have never managed to grow them. We need to completely redo our garden after the total battering it has taken this winter ... a lot of plants will have to be taken out to allow the Mr to replace the broken fences too and so I may have another go with a Hydrangea when I replant.
    I often make Tarte Tatin as the Mr loves it ... let me know if you need a good recipe!
    Washing curtains and windows is a Spring cleaning job that is next on my 'to do' list after I finish painting our utility area ... yes, smallest room in the house and I'm still not finished ... just the cupboard to paint now and I'm done!

  2. Your hydrangeas are beautiful, Kris. The blue one is such a pretty color. I hope they survive the rain that is coming your way. Cleaning blinds is one of my least favorite chores to do haha.

    Have a nice weekend looking at your hydrangeas that were just planted.


  3. Wow, I didn't know Hydrangea's could grow well here in FL! We only have a lanai so everything I have out there has to be potted. Succulents do well but several other things I've tried have not done so well:(

    I'm sorry about your apple tart! Hopefully your next attempt goes better!

  4. They are gorgeous - such vivid colors! :-)

  5. Tis moi again Kristie! What are some flowering plants that you have luck with here? I find I do well with succulents but anything flowery really struggles in the heat!
