This photo was taken this summer, after the roof was finished, but before we actually owned the house. I'm sharing it because the hydrangeas are today's project. I read that, in order to encourage growth if they're very old, or if they're out of control, you should prune them back in the Fall. They obviously thrived on neglect, but they're enormous and something's living in there. Here's a shot from the yard. ENORMOUS!
I have no idea what's living in there, but Velma the cat is afraid of it and, by default, so am I. I'm pretty certain that they're Annabelle hydrangeas and have read a bit about maintaining them. Any hydrangea-lovers out there with expert advice?
