June was the month for rose bushes loaded with an over abundance of blossoms. The smell of roses along with the sweet clove smell of the cheddar pinks carried on the breeze. the showers of June have given way to the heat of the July summer and the occasional shower along the way. And right on schedule the roses and peony give way to the summer blooms of the red trumpet vine, and the hummingbirds are found most of the afternoons feeding on those long red flowers.
July also brings with it the return of not only the wild day lillies along the country roads but also the ones in my gardens.
And the flower so symbolic of summer to me, the shasta daisy. Simplicity in itself.
What's blooming in your area right now?
