Plodding along

I got given some hydrangeas on Friday and I thought long and hard  where to put them. 
So I purchased two pots and put them by my back door. I think they look pretty and if I keep them trimmed they should be ok. I hope 
I've also got some butternut pumpkin seedlings which I will plant late this afternoon into a hay bale on the lawn. 
I'm hoping once the pumpkins have grown and been harvested I can put the whole thing in with the chickens for them to eat and the hay will keep them warm. But that's a while yet. Will keep you posted on progress 
Other than that hubby has been away with wonder son and his friends on his bucks weekend away. Camping and fishing and playing golf. And I'm off this afternoon for a Christmas catchup. 
Have a lovely Sunday everyone 
See ya xx


  1. That is a great ideal. Thy look wonderful in the pot. Chickens will be happy too. See ya! :)

  2. Lovely pots, but are these a special hydrangea? My plants that I had were almost 5' tall - are these hybrid?
    Happy to hear that your husband is well enough to frolic with the 'boys' and be out of your hair for a while.

    1. I think they are a hybrid. I'm not sure how big they can get but I plan on cutting back a lot to keep them compact. I'm just hoping it works

  3. Your hydrangeas look great in those lovely pots...they are a favourite flower of mine but I have a poor track record of trying to grow them...I'm a ' hydrangea killer' :-(
