A July Garden Update

Late July is a great time to sit back and enjoy all the hard work we put into our gardens in spring and over the years.  I haven’t been spending much time in our gardens lately because I just don’t feel like pulling anymore weeds and there are too many mosquitos out there after dinner.

Our coneflower garden is still growing like crazy.

Some of our annuals are still doing well too, like the dahlias.

A couple years ago, my mom gave us a bunch of lilies which we scattered throughout our yard. I don’t know how many we have now, but they get bigger every year.

We have pink ones,

and other colors too.

I had white lilies and white roses in my wedding bouquet so naturally, I love lilies. They are such a low maintenance plant yet they give so much color to the garden this time of year.

Hope you enjoy a lovely Friday!
