My neighbors always ask me and I still don't know. What kind of Shrub is this? Makes these puffy white flowers each May-June.

It's some type of hydrangea. Possibly a Pee Gee. Many people grow them in a tree form.

Hmm, the leaves don't resemble a Hydrangea though. Does look like the flower.

See anything?





How about now?

My Colorado Spruce is producing incredible red pinecones.


Dramatic with the blue skys behind it. Apparently Male pinecones are red, female are tan.





Azalea

There's over 300 species of hydrangea. I have one called quick fire that has that type of leaf, but the flowers are completely different.

It was a great year for daffodils and jonquils here in Southern MN. I had blooms nearly the whole month of April and usually they only last for about a week or so.
