Nadine, Susan and I have French lessons on Tuesday morning, but Nadine is leaving next week to visit her family in France for 6 weeks. So we went out to lunch. We went to a very nice little French cafe - good food - beautiful decor - very fun to have social time with my instructor and classmate. It was noisy and difficult to hear each other, so we conversed in English for the most part. (Susan and I breathed a huge sigh of relief on that one!!) (I must start remembering to take my camera with me!)
This past weekend I took photos of everything blooming in the gardens, and today I thought I would show you how the hydrangea are doing.
"All Summer Beauty" - I adore this hydrangea when it starts turning this dark rose color in the fall.
"Annabelle" is mostly lime green right now. I used to hate this color change, but I guess I'm mellowing in my old age, because now I'm quite enjoying it.
"Annabelle" again. It was simply loaded with big blooms this year.
There are a couple newer, still white blooms on Annabelle too.
And some turning brown already.
