This week is our first day back to homeschooling for the year. But we still have lots going on in the garden. The tomatoes and producing well and the green beans just keep coming and coming. I’m waiting on the peaches I have to ripen, so I can dry and can them. I would love to hear what is happening in your garden?

From your host this week, Jami @ An Oregon Cottage:
I, like many of you, grow lots of hydrangeas – many of them the variety Endless Summer. This type of hydrangea is affected by the acidity of the soil: less acidic soil produces pink blossoms and more acidic turns the blossoms blue (not all varieties are affected by the soil this way).
Since I don’t do blue anywhere in my house (and very little clothing besides denim – it’s just not my color), you can guess what kind of soil we have here, can’t you? Yep, from May through September every blossom that could be pink is blue. Bright, in-your-face blue. So you can imagine how I wait for the fall weather to start changing those blossoms a perfect greenish-pink. With Endless Summer you’ll have both on the plant at the same time, since it produces blossoms all season, like the first photo. Whatever – I’m just happy to have some pink-green blossoms to finally bring in to decorate our mantel with a little ‘welcome fall’ display!
Now to the features from last week’s party:
1. This garden is stunning and there’s so much inspiration and ideas in the photos shared by Conrad Art Glass Gardens.
2. I loved how this garden carrier was rescued and revived with some chalkboard paint and a twig by Artistic Endeavor 101.
3. How about making potpourri using the flowers from your garden like Penny’s Treasures?
4. Delicious looking recipes using garden fresh tomatoes and basil from Annie’s Place to Learn.
5. Wouldn’t it be great to have a secret sitting area like My 1929 Charmer?
Psst – remember to link back to the Tuesday Garden Party and follow the hosts in order for you to be featured!
We’re all looking forward to seeing what you’ve got going on in your gardens this week!
