The bloom in the garden and borders this July 4th was so great because of the little bit of rain we’ve had. You’ll recall the severe drought going on last year at this time.
Since you couldn’t be with me in person, I’ve put together a show of blooms and spots in the garden and borders that are among my favorites for you to see and enjoy. (Via Bill’s photos of course.)
Enlarge your browser as much as you can so the pictures will be bigger.
In addition to enjoying it, I hope it will inspire you and give you some ideas for your own gardens.
Wishing you a wonderful and bountiful summer.

This tree rose, planted new this spring, has bloomed continually.
Ruffled pink daylilies after a rain.
One of my favorite spots in the border.
Cuke on an easel; butternut squash to the left; volunteer potato to the right; tansy and hedge in back. I save this spot in back side flower border for vegetables.
Fairy-tale Pink daylily lives up to its name in this photo.
One of my favorite discords made even better with the grasses as a backdrop.

We’ve had these huge yellow/gold daylilies in our gardens for more than 30 years. They’re Bill’s favorite.
One of the last Flanders poppy blooms and seed pods.
Buddleia blossom and butterfly.
How beautiful is this?
Von Stein Lambs Ear and Fading Onothera.
These calla lilies have dropped their seed for 13 years in my garden. They come back every year increasing slightly if I allow it.
Note the tiny bee and the raindrop on this beautiful double gold daylily.
Our asparagus ferns are about 7 feet tall. I love to look at them before a strong storm makes then lean.
This day lily is one I call Field Red. Bill made it a show piece with his camera.
Echinacea and daylilies. Note the bee on the left and the butterfly just right of top center. Using complimentary colors together makes the border shine.
This is one of best large pink daylilies.
Blueberries. Still many to come as of July 4th.
Glowing in the shadows.
