The best show in the garden in July is in the middle of the street: Alliums, Sedums, Pelargoniums, Geraniums, Lilies and Nasturtiums are all blooming out in my Traffic Island garden. If the angle looks a bit funny I was shooting down at the plants to show the mixing and twining.
The lilies on one side of the island are out of control but the ones on the other side died out. They were a slightly different yellow with white centers. After these finish blooming I'm going to thin them out and move a few to the opposite side.
It's small space in full sun and it's stuffed with bulbs and flowers that seem unfazed by snow and road salt. I add some annuals each spring but I don't amend the soil or do any watering except when I add a new plant.
To see what's blooming in gardens around the world on this day, visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens.
