July has been bringing sizzling days of summer. It may be hot, but luckily I have a few flowers that still manage to put on a show. Also we have been blessed to have had a few rain storms lately.
My Hollyhocks have grown to be over 8 ft. tall and have beautiful pink and red blooms. See them soaring above the fence?
Look at these gorgeous Zinnias. I love the vibrant colors!
My rustic birds seems to be happy nestled among them. I took this pic a while ago and now there are a lot more blooms.
As I walk outside my front door I just want to say, “Hello Yellow”. My lily and Black Eyed Susan’s seem to be basking in the sun.
And look at these sunflowers that reseeded from last year. I think the birds had a little bit to do with the spreading of the seeds. Some of the heads are smaller but still kind of fun.
Talk about reseeding, just look at this Portulaca. I planted a few of them last year and this year they have come up all over. I think it must be because we had such a mild winter.
A bit of white always brings delight. Daisies, Fever Few, and Cone Flowers.
This pink Coneflower made me smile. Looks as if this little fella is reaching for a drink. who could blame him, or is it a she?

My new roses are suffering a little in the heat, but the Marigold seeds I sprinkled along the rustic fence are loving it.
soon I will share my pergola with you. This is hubby and I’s favorite place to hang out. My annual pots are starting to finally fill out. Love this vintage wicker planter I bought at the ‘Star Mill’. I planted it with Ivy Geraniums and a spike.
There you have it, my July blooms. Hope you enjoyed them. I would love to see what’s blooming in your garden.
