I hope your neck of the woods isn’t as hot as it is here in the Midwest. At least we’re getting rain showers a couple of times a week. Here’s an Oriental Lily just blooming. I forgot I planted it last year. What a nice surprise. This is the first one I’ve every grown. They’re supposed to multiple over time. I sure hope this one does.
These limelight hydrangea were planted last year, and they are doing great this year.
They are perfect for all day sun.
The Black Eyed Susans have opened up. They are one of the most reliable of perennials. My Crepe Myrtle in the back corner has started blooming, too.
A close up of the Crepe Myrtle. Here in zone 6 we can grow them, but some winters they die back to the root. It has such pretty delicate flowers.
More Black Eyed Susans with Daisies.
The Russian Sage is blooming now, too.
Garden Phlox also opened up. They were a gift from a fellow garden friend.
I just created this butterfly garden last year, and it has been such a joy this year to watch everything bloom and color my back yard. I hope you enjoyed my little tour.
