Growth and rest.

For the past three years we have been taking a photo of my daughter in front of the hydrangea plants. She is usually sitting next to our plum harvest since the blooms on the hydrangea coincide with the fruit picking in early summer or late spring.

Last year, we were sorely disappointed when our plum tree did not bear fruit. We had a few little ones that fell to the ground, but nothing worth keeping or eating. This year, to our delight, we had a great harvest! However, the hydrangea decided to take a sabbatical this year...

Here is our daughter with most of the second batch (the kids ate a bucketful, I'm sure).

2011 - with added dramatic flare, "what-EVER will we do with all of these plums?"
