On this first day of July, I am posting some pictures of flowers that are blooming nicely right now. There are several things that are growing nicely (red amaranth, for example) but which are not yet blooming. So here are some pictures of brightly colored flowers.
These light pink hollyhocks came from seed last year and they have returned very nicely. These are in a fairly protected spot between one of the walnut trees and the fence and I’ve not had to stake them so far. There were massive thunderstorms last night but it was thunder and lightening without any real rain. So disappointing.
The rudbeckia are still doing well –and this large clump in the bottom of the photo (below) hasn’t started to bloom.
