This week I've gone all renegade and I'm focusing on just one plant, the hydrangea. It's coming to the end of what has been a cracking Summer of blooming and this week I made time to visit local Exbury Gardens to catch a final glimpse of them before they die over for the year. It seems like an age since I first posted photos of the Hydrangea walk in all it's glory.

I am feeling such a lot of  love for these flowers and they are top of my list to add to my own garden early next year. By the way, did I mention that my garden has been reduced to a mud-pit as building work cranks up another notch? I'm depressed and excited in equal measures, I keep telling myself that having a blank canvas is a good thing...
