unexpected gifts

My lilies and dahlias are in full bloom.


Have I mentioned that these were annual bulbs that I planted in the spring of 2011 and failed to dig up last fall?


These flowers should have died, but they've bloomed even better than they did last year!


See my neighbor's amazing blue hydrangeas in the background of the photo below?


She has so many blossoms, she told me that I could cut off as many as I wanted. What an amazing gift! Her hydrangeas really are the most perfect color of blue.

It looks BEAUTIFUL. I'm jealous! I think you would have a field day with all the space we have to plant stuff....and right now all we have are various weeds!? I clearly need to inherit your green thumb. SIGH. ;)
