The first of July set heat records here and required copious amounts of H2O. Whilst watering I shot a few Galaxy fone shots. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.....

RE: A Few July Jewels

Absolutely stunning. The roses are beautiful, and I especially love the hydrangeas.

RE: A Few July Jewels

That. Hydrangea. Is. Gorgeous!! That's ridiculousness!! Rose are quite pretty too but that hydrangea blows me away everytime you post a pic of it. Glowing embers right? Slap me silly it's gorgeous!!! Judy

RE: A Few July Jewels

Wow!!! I love your Abe Darby - especially the picture that has all the wavy petals. No one grows Abe like you do!

Hey, I was wondering if you could post a bush shot of Betty Boop. I'd love to see the blooms on the shrub, not just the blooms alone. I've always thought of getting Betty Boop.

Your Chicago Peace (like always) is phenomenal!!! The colors just blow me away!

Thanks so much Boxo!

RE: A Few July Jewels

Appreciate the tour --such lovely roses and other plants. That Wall of Easy is impressive!

Wow you have a lovely garden! The roses are gorgeous, but those hydrangeas are spectacular!!

RE: A Few July Jewels

Thanks for sharing Boxo! Your pics never disappoint! ;-)

RE: A Few July Jewels

Holy cow! Absolutely stunning! Congrats to you.

RE: A Few July Jewels

Those are all spectacular! The hydrangeas are something, and Abe Darby is gorgeous, it all looks great.

RE: A Few July Jewels

I love roses, but your hydrangeas steal the show!

RE: A Few July Jewels

I love your Abe Darby and the wall of Easy, beautiful. But DANG........your hydrangeas are out of this world GORGEOUS! Thank you for sharing such beauty, I would never want to leave my backyard if it looked like that :).

RE: A Few July Jewels

Wow, how kind of all ya-alls ;-)

I have a neighbor who has nary a flower in her yard who LOVES hydrangeas and I'm going to surprise her with a huge bouquet this holiday afternoon. I'll take a pic and post it.

Here's some more shots from this AM......

The roses are amazing, boxo, but so are those hydrangeas! And I'm drooling over the cherries!

RE: A Few July Jewels

seil......sad story on the cherries, unless you are a bird ;-)

After much consternation especially with the bumper crop, we both decided that my health and welfare along with all the underplanted phlox and etcetera being potentially damaged was not worth the attempt to harvest. The birds get it all !!! It just wasn't safe to try and set up a's hell when you get old :-(

RE: A Few July Jewels

Absolutely amazing! I need to move to the PNW!

RE: A Few July Jewels needs to be careful when mentioning free cherries. We are in the middle of re-coating our deck and I arose early this AM to look at yesterdays coat and much to my chagrin, two extremely plump raccoons were right in the middle chowing down. Since we have small pets, they are unwelcome intruders ( they also were in my pond and waterfalls last night.)
