garden butcher

I had to hack down one of my hydrangeas today. It was really hard to do, because the blooms were so big and white and fluffy on my annabelle! Here's what it should have looked like. Instead, after a couple of weeks of really nice blooms, the leaves started dropping, losing the pigment and a downy white web covered everything. i can't seem to find my plant pests books to look this up, and I didn't want whatever evil garden pest this was to jump to my super happy oak leaf hydrangea right next to it. So now, my annabelle is going to be all stumpy till next season. so sad!
