Photos from the second week of July.


The tiny flowers of the allysum are perfect in my pots.

Beans in the making.

This sunflower has two heads!

Fennel is ready to be harvested. Young fennel is more tender than the larger bulbs later in the season.

Lovely little chamomile flowers.

Within the last few days the dill has produced flower heads.

This purple clematis is tucked in between our fence and house, about 3 feet between the two. The flowers can be viewed from my daughter's nursery window and are putting on quite the show!

This has been the best year so far for my hydrangea, so many blooms!

Planted a strawberry pot, but oops! didn't buy enough strawberries and need to go back to buy a few for the top of the pot.

 

Why yes, I do love my garden.

 

The buds of this burning bush are visually interesting.

 

This clematis vine is sending shoots straight up. I can't wait to see these flowers in a few weeks.

 

A bug's eye view of the tulips.

 

The honeysuckle is growing at an astounding rate now that it's May. Soon it will welcome hummingbirds.

 

A new rosemary plant. My previous plant started to look very sick in recent weeks and I wasn't able to revive it. Sometimes it's best to start over.

Finally made it out to the garden to do some digging and planting.

 

After turning this bed over and adding some amendments, my son and I planted peas around these supports. We arranged them into a little "house" so he can go in and pick peas.

 

I love that the emerging lavender buds ARE the color lavender. So pretty.

 

A sage leaf unravels.

 

Aha! Proof that the squirrels didn't take all the tulips I planted in my raised bed. I have plans to use these for bouquets, hoping more come up.

 

My daughter's clematis vine wakes up to spring.

 

Despite freezing temperatures, a hail storm and a lack of sun, the chives grow.

 

This Rose of Sharon won't be bare for long.
