Mom's Garden

My mom has a small flower garden near the kitchen door, which is the main door, as far as anyone is concerned, even though it is on the side of the house. At this time of year, it's especially nice to have flowers like this near the house, they give off such a sweet scent for everyone to enjoy. They also look great.

Here's an interesting site I found about natural health and flowers.

This can't be seen in the other two pictures, it's closer to the house, and I believe it is a Nikko Blue Hydrangea. It's relatively small now, but will hopefully grow to be 4-6 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide.

Because of how the flowers appear, Hydrangeas like this are often called "mopheads".
