What's blooming in your July Ohio Valley garden?
It's almost too much to list!
I've got roses, clematis, several kinds of sedum, coreopsis, cosmos, Texas bluebonnets, celosia, 4:00s, gaillardia, lilies, several kinds of daylilies, honeywort, geraniums, 2 kinds of cuphea, stocks, night stocks, fuschia, heliotrope, alyssum, pendulous begonia, calendula, marigolds, echinacea, verbena, the basils, larkspur, scented geraniums, daisies, winter-hardy glads... and that's just off the top of my head!
I'm thrilled, thrilled, thrilled with this stand of stargazer lilies. I've never had such a thick stand of lilies before, but this is the bed I put coffee grounds on. For once, the squirrels didn't dig up the majority of the bulbs I planted, and they all bloomed!
This is my new favorite daylily, Franz Hals. The colors are a bit washed out, because it was so bright this morning, (I wish the cement really was that blue!) but the yellow and orange are incredibly vibrant.
And this is a bit of a cheat, because it's not in my garden, but here's a shot of the waterlilies blooming on the pond at Goodale Park.
So what's blooming by you?
