The Polar Vortex took a toll on my blue hydrangeas this winter. Not a single bloom is coming out in my front gardens. The arctic blast whipped through the unsheltered bushes. A single dark blue bloom did peep through. Proof that it is important to add aluminum in the spring… Off to go do some more weeding today. I’m starting to believe my mom’s theory that they put weed seeds in the mulch. It’s a conspiracy to buy more mulch. Think about it… Stupid Weeds!
