Beautiful! Saw some clip of Madonna saying she hated hydrangeas. More back door southern bashing, since the hydrangea is such a southern flower. Azaleas, gardenias, wisteria. The lilies and petunias. Various ferns. There is nothing more the polar opposite to the northern-tract-housing-mass plantings and hills of mulch than the grace of the southern garden, with its natural but controlled lines. Personally, I like it when some English cottage gardening is introduced, too, so that edibles and ornamentals mingle.
Thanks, Dixiegirl. That’s a good point about Madonna and the hydrangeas. I doubt I would have picked up on that.
If the Yankees keep invading our south we will become just like them. tract housing, mass plantings and hills of mulch, and like Dixiegirl said “there is nothing more polar opposite”. Them Yankees just keep bringing their trashy life style and ideas about how to live down here. Their kinda like cancer. They invade and destroy the host. Then they move on. They never have nor will they ever understand symbiotic relationships.
Hey, I got the spelling right on this one.
