Bloom Day — July 2012

Summer is at her peak, and the flowers are enjoying the sunny, hot weather. Here is what we have blooming in our yards.

Here’s what’s blooming in July at 600 meters above sea level in Norway. 

The view over my garden and down to the lake

Creeping thyme among the pavers, rosemary
surrounded by
Campanula in the pot, and geranium

The top part of the garden with salad greens and herbs in pots

Lovely scented viola that has overwintered twice now!
Looking up from the bottom of the garden — a work still in progress

Maribeth Casey, Williamstown, Massachusetts:


Daylily — blood red with yellow eye

Daylily — peach

Cindy McFarland, Williamstown, Massachusetts:

Here are a few shots from my garden. The shot with the Clematis was taken on the 4th of July — a happy and unexpected accident of colors.

This photograph was taken on July 4th: ‘Jackmanni’ Clematis
in the back climbing a trellis we made of apple cuttings from
pruning our Northern Spy in the spring, bee balm,
Astilbe, and a lemon daylily.

This photograph was taken on July 14: cerise Achillea,
Shasta daisy, Coreopsis (yellow), Neyron Rose daylily — a plant
developed by author Lewis Hill — in the background.

Kathryn Remillard, North Adams, Massachusetts:
Echinacea (coneflower) and Clematis

Tropicana tea rose bush (33 years old!), Clematis vines,
petunias, snapdragons, and dahlias

This light pink shrub rose changes color.
It started the season as deep rose.

Bee balm, phlox, and lamb's ears
Marigolds, tea rose bush, begonias, and hens and chicks

Lily pad and goldfish pond is thriving.

Tea rose
This summer squash plant exploded with
blossoms and squash over the weekend.
