Enjoy today’s garden photos here, and then check out The Propagator for more photos from gardens around the world.
Lilies are beginning to bloom in Northeast Ohio, and the show is always spectacular. It’s a great reminder that July is on its way, and warm temperatures have arrived.
We’ve had a week of 90’s and some soaking rain. The garden is exploding as if we lived in the tropics.
Close behind (exactly one day later), a pink Asiatic lily joins the pageant. I think of Barbie® when I see these colors together!
Tradescantia wants to join the party, too. Though I love the color, it is a messy plant, and foliage falls everywhere. Last fall, I transplanted it to a bed with hosta, and the firm hosta leaves seem to do a good job of supporting the tradescantia.
Yes, I have been teased about my urn planters sporting cherry tomato plants. That’s okay, though. I’ll enjoy popping those sweet, sun-warmed tomatoes right into my mouth while I sit on the deck reading the latest thriller 🙂
The beefsteak tomatoes in the garden “proper” are also growing like gangbusters. The fruit formed on these even before the cherry tomatoes.
This last photo is from a recent bike ride in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The daisies looked so bright and sunny along the path.
Enjoy the first Saturday of “true” summer!
