July 2017 - Garden Blogger's Bloom Day
Ah, it's July and summer has arrived.
It's time for stretching out and reading a good novel, bbq's, camping trips and (as much as possible) a different pace to everyday life.
In the garden, I find myself snaping pictures in the early mornings. The soft light is sweet on the blooms. Above, a pretty vignette of coneflowers and hyssop in a container with daylilies and veronica in the background.

The bee balm in it's second year. I have 4 clumps growing and the hummingbirds love it!
The bumble bee's have been sleeping in my garden. I counted over 40 one night. They like the taller plants like Joe Pye weed, Beautyberry and native Asters. I might have done a little happy dance when I found all of those sweetly, sleeping, bumble bees.
Another shot of my pretty coneflowers.
If you need me this month, here's where I'll be. Thanks to Carol @ MayDreamsGarden for hosting the monthly Garden Bloggers Bloom Day on the 15th of every month.
