At last the Hydrangea's have started blooming. One of my plants has a (only one) nice big blue flower while the other has smaller pink flowers, which will eventually turn a purplish-blue shade. They used to be blue but I haven't been diligent when it comes to applying Aluminum Sulfate on a yearly basis. Still I think the pink is pretty.
And here is the father Chipping Sparrow telling me to skee daddle as I'm trying to take a picture of the flowers, though he's impossible to hear over the other birds. Apparently they were so sick of me hanging around the arbor they have since decided to nest elsewhere, (I took the pictures a few days ago). I feel terrible about it because the arbor was such a safe place for their babies. Guess they thought otherwise.
