I was just thinking that I need to sit down this winter and find flowers that bloom in July since there isn't a lot of color in some of my gardens right now. However, I do have some great blooms. Both these lily's were gifts from the prior owners. The first one is my favorite.
This is one of two dwarf hydrangeas I bought last year. This is the first time they have bloomed.
This is actually a bush. I had to look up the name on my planning sheet....it's called Katherine Dykes.
I'm blanking on what these are called and I loaned my tell all flower book to a friend. I got them at a plant swap at the Garden Club and they spread like crazy! I like them though, they are different.
One of the hollyhocks. Last year they were all white and pale yellow. I am thrilled to see pinks this year. They look great by the barn.
The fever few in the back aways does great anywhere and is a nice filler. The yellow flowers are sun drops. The reason I took this shot is to show the marine bells (the blue flowers in front.) This is the first time I have had this annual and they have done great. They mounded nicely and I have them in full sun. It's been dry here and I haven't been watering them. They are one of my must haves now.
I love this little pink flower. The name when I bought it was "party girl." I wonder who gets to name the plants? Anyway, I love her. I wish she would spread but I get one plant every year.
The white hydrangea is huge this year. I love bringing the blooms inside. I keep saying I am going to dry some this year but I better get going on that one!
