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. 
I'm trying less and less to fight my soil type. I'll plant pretty things like coneflowers in the summer months, only to lose them over the wet winter in heavy clay soil. So..I'm potting up those coneflowers in containers and hoping that will help them winter over. Summer blooming plants that have been successful have been Veronica 'First Glory', Bee Balm 'Jacob Cline', Helenium, Phlox, Daylilies, and Rudbeckia. Very classic plants..nothing fancy, but it is what is making it without much fuss.
And who should be lurking in the gardens but a Demon Cat....
