The middle of July is a gardener's paradise, for that is when most gardens are at full peak. It seems everything is full, lush, and colorful this time of the year. Most of the perennials have almost all bloomed by now, and the annuals are finally getting all the warmth and sun their hearts desired and have really filled out.
Last week I showed you a single bloom of my Purple Coneflower as they were just starting to open up. This week, they are really peaking. What I love the most about this plant is that the blooms last a very, very, long time. Often well into late summer/early fall. Yes, the color fades a bit and change, but they still provide interest in the garden for quite awhile.
I got really lucky and even had a pretty butterfly sit for me for awhile so I could take his picture!
And now for the stars of the Mid-July Garden: the Daylilys! I love day lilies for they are so hardy and easy to grow, so I have many different varieties. Here is a pretty pink one with a yellow center.
Have a great day! Amy
