July Garden/Nature Notes

Samplings from my garden in late July

There are many red blossoms and a few blue in my gardens right now.

Largest square: monarch sipping nectar from garden phlox (Phlox paniculata). coleus (an annual),  firetail (Persicaria amplexicaulis 'firetail'), red daylily,  bee on oops! a plant I cannot remember its name, and blue balloon flower (Platicondon grandiflorus).

Your garden is so bright! I am remembering back to some of your nature notes from late fall or winter - browns and whites. I love the balloon flower - what a color.

Beautiful garden mosaic. I'm envious that you still have flowers this late in the summer - actually, it's not all that late. There's still two brutal months of summer left for us!

see you there! said...

You must be enjoying your beautiful garden. I like blue flowers, a bit of a surprise among the other colors.

You have a green green thumb, beautiful flowers & shots! (I'm learning a lot about plant names just from your posts :)

You have a fantastic garden and must have a green thumb. Every time I plant something I hear laughter in the background. Can't figure it out. A message, perhaps?

Gorgeous collage of blooms EG, these flowers remind me of plants that you might find in an English cottage garden.

Nice variety of colors and textures in your pretty garden. And I love how the butterfly made a cameo appearance :)
