The weather in New England can only be described as hot, hot, and hot. In fact two years ago we had such a weather pattern my area had a "micro burst" across the lake that snapped telephone poles off. Last year we had a swath of circular laid trees...broken and demolished, unconfirmed tornado (I admit it is very unusual in Maine). BUT! This year we had two confirmed funnel clouds in one storm. I'm not sure if it's related to the long term 90 degree weather or acceptance of such a phenomena up here, but it was wayyyy different to see the TV stay on a state of emergency. Everyone is alright and that's all that matters.
Anyway, I have some current blooms in my yard and went on a picture snapping trip on 7/17, I thought I'd post about them. Pink Delphinium and a purple coleus flower in the background.
My mailbox planter, red, pink and white geranium. (blooms are wiped out from the storm)
My Pee gee hydrangea is starting to show, by the middle of August it will be full.
A new addition, my daughter and I planted some hybrid lilies.
This one also!
My transplanted hosta.
A rose from my mother I consider to be a seven sister. She always flowers for me very late and very nicely.
Pink spirea, so delicate.
A faithful daylily that has flowered every year,
but the companion pass-a-long finally made a show. *sigh* How pretty.
A blackish viola I planted so I could have them all over the place next year, just cause.
My Joe Pye Weed budding out.
And the transplanted blazing star is doing superbly.
Who doesn't love a pea flower?
Time to get ready for picking. In the Garden.
