The July Garden

This is the time of year when all the digging & transplanting,  laying in compost & fertilizer, and mulching shows the payoff.  Here are some of my favorite July flowers.

The butterfly bushes draw swallowtails to my garden

I love the fragrance I get from the roses.  These bloom continuously throughout the summer.

Love this quirky planter with the geranium, attached to the garden gate.  It adds a casual feel to the space, and a bright spot to this neutral area of the shady garden.  It is one of those spaces that just happens to have more light than the rest of this garden.

A person that gardens truly shows that they have faith in the future.  It is a practice of patience, trial & error, and a fight against the elements.  But when it all comes together….it is heaven on earth.
