"I don't know, but we'd better find them! Maybe it was the neighbour's dog?"
Ceanothus. (Around here, we call them California Lilac or Mountain Lilac.)What ARE those pretty blue flowers? Probably too frost sensitive for here, sigh, but they are very pretty!
what a great pic! they look like lilacs. we have a bush outside of them they bloomed for like a day then they died on us. I love the smell they release!
My favourite part of our property!Peggy are those lilacs? If they are I absolutely understand why you buried your head in them. I think they smell divine!
I've got northern blood (love the snow!!) but zone 8's been a revelation for me. There always seems to be something in bloom. It was especially fun moving into the former home of a passionate gardener. There were many beautiful surprises here our first few years.Oh Peggy, the evidence is right on your nose! Gorgeous flowers, I was wondering if they were some type of hydrangea. Can’t grow that here- All sorts of possibilities in zone 8- here in the north country I’m a little more limited.
I just planted a wisteria vine, I’ve always wanted one. We still have to build a support for it, has a few blossoms that are now fading. Hopefully it survives the winter!
