More Mid-July Blooms
First off I would just like to say that I am so glad that we are not having a heat wave. I get horrible heat rash and right now it is so pleasant. The temperatures have been around 80 and there has been a nice cool breeze at night. I love the Pacific Northwest.
There have been a few new flowers opening. I am so excited that the Rose of Sharon is blooming. I would really like to move it, trim it and make it into a focal point because I love it so much. The anemones are about the open, but they aren’t quite there yet. I have been busy weeding and reclaiming some of the ground which has been overtaken with lemon mint. I like the smell of it, but boy does it make a bed look messy. Anyway, here are a few new pictures for you to enjoy.
I also caught a hummingbird in the garden today. I wish I had a better lens so that I could have gotten a closer picture.
