July Flowers

A lot of things in our yard are in bloom right now – we have many different wildflowers, and I planted some flowers in the garden that are currently in bloom.   Here is a tour of the flowers in our yard this month:

Here are some Snapdragons and Pansies I have growing in a barrel on our porch.  I've never grown snapdragons before. They are very colorful.

Here is some yarrow that is growing next to my not-yet-bloomed lilies in a barrel.  We have some wild (like this one) and some that I believe my mom said she planted that comes in different colors.

I am not sure what these are, but they grow on the side of our house and they are pretty.

I'm not sure what this is, it's a wild daisy-type flower that grows in my yard.  The plant is about 3-4 ft. tall, and these flowers are about the size of a quarter.

Here is one of my marigolds.  I have a few of these scattered in the garden, and in some flower barrels on the porch.

One of my Calendulas, now in bloom.  This is the first year I've grown this, I really like the flowers.  They are very bright.

One of our many hollyhocks.  We have a tiny hollyhock "forest" near our side door - my mom planted some years ago and they keep coming back each year.  There are probably 10-12 plants, and this is one of the first to bloom this year.

A large Mullein growing in our asparagus patch.  This is a medicinal plant, and it's probably about time to harvest it - I need to do some research on the proper method of doing that.

These clematis grow near our rose bush. Our first spring here, I stole their support fence for a different spot, because I didn't know they were growing there.  They are in an area where the grass gets really tall, so that is what is supporting it at the moment. I plan on giving it better support here soon.

Here is my Black Eyed Susan Thunbergia, growing up my fene.
