|My hydrangea tree in full glory-Sept. 1, 2011|
But last summer is glory days for my hydrangea tree here at the cabin. My hydrangea tree was planted by my grandmother decades ago. We bought the cabin from her in 1999 and I've enjoyed it every summer. Even though it was broken off at the root by a fallen tree one time. But that's another story. The tree returned in full glory the following summer.
We are also having a large bloom of purple loosestrife here on the St. Marys River. This plant is dangerous and an invasive species. I spoke with some authorities this summer on how to eliminate it and I will share that in a later post. But there isn't much we can do about it as land owners.
