My July rainbow garden

15 comments


This month is the month when all the different colours mingle together every year. It makes me sing a rainbow as I saunter round the flower beds.

RED……

…and YELLOW..

….and PINK

….and GREEN

….PURPLE

..and ORANGE…..


..and BLUE


……I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too.
I know some of the colours are more pink than red or orange than red or purple than blue or pink than purple!!!!! Oh! I’m going colour blind I think….

What a lovely, lovely blog Chris.... so many stunning plants and colours....Beautiful! Love the purple Penstemon, last photo before the orange selection.Whats that one called?

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. I love it when all the borders are bursting with flowers and foliage.
I think that one is Blackberry Gralew. I've tried taking cuttings of it but none ever root for me. I'm going to try again this year, one day I might just get one to grow....lol
My one disappointment this year is that most of the day lily flower buds are discolouring and dropping off. I have to look that up and see what causes it. It's never happened before.

Stunning; you have inspired me to take some close up pictures in my own garden. Not today though, we have some much needed rain here in Ayrshire - the first for three weeks

Thanks Wendy. We haven't had any 'proper' rain for nearly 2 weeks. Only the odd few minutes drizzle that didn't wet anything.
