Lets get back to the routine ... and the hydrangea's

Holiday time is lovely ... the build up to Christmas, Christmas it's self ... but once the New Year comes I just want to be back in the normal routine. I find my life works better that way.

So first of all the food has to go back to normal, don't get me wrong I love all this fancy food but a body can only take so much of it ... This weekend I will finish or remove all this kind of food ....  Monday is the start of Back to Routine.

Today is beautiful and so I walked around the garden to see how things have fared over the holidays as there has been a modicum of neglect for 2 weeks  +.

There is a small area where I park the campervan  and the garden shed is situated ... not an area I frequent very often ... low and behold the hydrangea ( which is just one plant by the way)  is almost 8ft tall  as tall as the shed and bears a head on every stem.
Here are just a few of the others that are scattered around ....

This one was just a cutting last season .... it is a beautiful colour and I was so pleased it kept it ...for sometimes they do change when you grow from cuttings

Another cutting just pushed into the soil.... also on it's 2nd season .... and I have a feeling it is going to get to large for this position

So back to the routine a simple meal tonight  as there are plenty of eggs may be a Spanish frittata ...  I am sure there is plenty of left overs to add to it in the refrigerator ...
Now that decision has been made I am going to do some stitching for the rest of the day.

Your hydrangeas are lovely! I've never tried to grow them as we have such awful soil. So I must admire other's!
