July In the Garden

I can’t believe July is almost over!  It has been both very hot and very wet in turns… but the garden is thriving nonetheless.  Here’s a quick tour of what’s blooming in the garden this month. 

A little yellow coreopsis lingered into July along with the purple coneflowers…


Our pink Rose of Sharon is making its comeback after being pruned back last year.


The Black Eyed Susans are plentiful and cheerful!

The hot pink Crape Myrtle in the front yard is putting on a show this year, despite being torn in half by a falling tree last Spring.  Luckily the “good” side faces the street. :)

Happy Summer!

My dad is OBSESSED with crape myrtles! They're his babies, and he's always trying to get them to survive the Ohio winters! I love it! :-)
