Garden Bloggers Bloom Day -- July 2016

There are still plenty of flowers blooming in my garden right now, although things have slowed down from the spring frenzy. But the blooms making the biggest, boldest impression at the moment are the lilies, both the true lilies and the daylilies. So that's what I'm showcasing today.


This large clump is perfuming the entire front garden











Carol at May Dreams Gardens hosts Garden Bloggers Bloom Day on the 15th of every month. Check out her post here.

  9. I was afraid nothing would be blooming in my garden for our open tomorrow, but we do have quite a bit of color, daylilies included. The orientals are just about to break bud.

  11. You have an amazing lily assortment! Lilies are one of those species I don't grow, but I'm so delighted people do so I get to enjoy their wonderful color and form each year. All I need now is Smell-o-vision to fully appreciate yours!

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
