High summer, can you believe it? Every month I say that this is a special time in our gardens or that I like this month the best but this time I really mean it! (Until next month, right?) Here's some of what's blooming in my garden this month.
Brugmansias, Begonias, Tropaeolum speciosum, pelargonums. The largest begonias are Ameri-Hybrids from California.
Did I mention begonias?
Begonias and buckets. Isn't that pretty?
Hosta 'Sum and Substance'
Fuchsia. Isn't the bungee cord hanger classy?
Lilies that didn't fall over in the rain. These are "Lily Trees" from Brecks. The bulbs are really large and after three years they have become huge and sturdy as advertised.
Lilies that did flop over in the rain. I've had them forever and they've multiplied nicely.
Another faller. They still smell good though!
This arrangement made itself.
Enough with those smelly lilies already!
It was early and the daylilies hadn't opened yet. The bumblebee didn't seem to mind.
Roses here and there.
Buddleia that used to have variegated leaves to go with these blooms. The birds, bees, and butterflies don't seem to mind.
There are abutilons on both sides of the path.
The last few Romneya coulteri for this year.
What's blooming in your garden this month? Happy GBBD and happy Friday!
