Mid July in the Garden

           Hello everyone,

      I hope you are enjoying your summer.

It has been hot and dry here lately so
I am hoping for a nice rain soon.

However, the garden is still doing
well for now.

                                                                  There are lots of roses in bloom.
                                                                       The virginia creeper is starting
                                                                        to cover the north end of our barn
                                                               I always look forward to the tall, stately blooms of
                                                                our delphiniums.

                                                                Delphiniums,peonies and nepeta
                                                                  I love the six hills giant nepeta along all
                                                                  along the inside edges of our Allee Garden.
We have several mockoranges blooming
now and they have a wonderful scent.

                                                                 Roses and delphiniums in our Chelsea Garden.

                                                                      Lavender and roses in my little
                                                                      memory garden for my Mom.
                                                        So just a few highlights of our garden
                                                                   in mid July. I hope you enjoyed the
                                                                    quick tour today. Our daylillies are
                                                                    starting their show now and we probably
                                                                    have about 200 of them spread around the
                                                                    garden and the phlox will follow shortly.

                                                                                         Thank you for stopping by!

Those delphiniums are spectacular! And the nepeta alley is magical. Hope you get some rain soon. (We haven't had any in months, but we're used to that in dusty Southern California, I guess)!
Thanks for sharing the beauty of your world.

LOVE your gardens and would love to take a stroll through them! Your delphiniums are absolutely AMAZING. I planted two here in my tiny flower bed, and they weathered through the winter but didn't grow much, and now the bugs are eating them all (earwigs I think). Are they a sun loving or shade loving flower and do they need alot of water? How often do you get rain there or how often do you water? It must be a huge chore to water everything!!!! or do you just depend on Mother Nature? Would love a post by you of how you take care of your gardens so well.. the watering, etc. Everything else you have there also is just so stunning and I love it all! Happy Mid-July!
