Delphiniums  on Bloom Day

I don’t know how we got to July already this year, but here we are at Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day on July 15, 2020. These two delphiniums are the last standing plants, helped  a little bit by the wiggly stakes. If you are going to grow delphiniums you need stakes and pray for gentle rains, not torrents. That is  a  wonderful Lonicera, honeysuckle, behind the delphiniums.

Here we are with three kinds of flower living happily with each other.

I’m always happy to see a neighborhood of friendly plants. Pretty soon the cardinal flowers will be joining them.

I have lots of daylilies in bloom and I will not show all of them. I like having all the different colors and forms as well as the fact that some of them are bloom into the fall.

The raspberries aren’t bloomers, but I am  so happy with my raspberry patch. I have picked almost a quart every day for the past five days. Delicious!  I wish I knew the names of the varieties. Long forgotten. Thank you Nourse berry farm.

And thank you Carol over at May Dreams Gardens. With Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day you have  given us all the gift of visiting beautiful gardens  across the country every month.

    Yes, I have some weaklings plants that need some support too. I try to not grow them here because summer thunderstorms with heavy rains love our town. Your garden seems lush, cool and inviting for summers.

    Ray – I’ll be glad when the cool part clicks in a little more firmly. Thanks for visiting.
