Since our favorite catfish place that had closed permanently is now back open with the same owners, Dad actually went with us to eat there tonight. He has a girlfriend that is a waitress there. I think that's the only reason he went, but it was nice. I still had to hold his hand and guide him in the restaurant, but he actually ate pretty well. His speech has improved dramatically, so he is talking normal now.

This morning I spent a long time in my yard trying to get rid of some shrubs that I don't like. I don't know the name of them, but I see them everywhere at every house. They have maroon colored leaves, but they grow too fast. I have to trim them all the time and it is just a pain. I cut them down, then dug them up. Dang roots went to China! I'm thinking hydrangeas will fill in the void.

Glad you Dad got out for a little while.
They are called red leaf something, I used to have some and they grew like crazy.

I do like hydrangeas but have a tremendous amount of mold problems with them. I have to teat them with a lot a TC to get them to flower and then when I do the heat ruins the flowers by mid summer

You might consider Azaleas instead unless the cold would get them...or maybe Rose OF Sharon but if you don't get the kinda rain we get the hydrangea will probably be great I do love the flowers

Guy, all the rest of the flowers in the landscaping are azaleas. I need something different to break them up. My hydrangeas do wonderfully well. Not much care needed and flower mold.
