My July Garden in Pictures (Washington State, zone 8)

***Copyright 2017 TatyanaS


  1. Beautiful! We are parched down here in Texas. I saw your red wagon and use one too to haul things around the garden.

  2. Everything is so lush and beautiful and colorful! Even your grass is green. After the last couple of weeks, even with me watering every day, everything in my garden is fried to a crisp. I can't stand looking at it, much less taking pictures. Your photos were a most welcome distraction.

  3. Beautiful, colorful and serene.

  4. Tanya, your garden is stunning! so lush, colorful and exuberant! I love it!

  5. The exuberant beauty of your garden reflects your personality well. Gorgeous as always!

  6. Wow, wow, what a beautiful garden. You can be very proud about having a garden like you have. So many beautiful flowers in all kind of colors.
    I love it.
    Have a wonderful dayTatyana.

  7. Tanya, I saw a picture you have posted about your soil. I too garden with a pick. Tell me, how did you begin your. Flower beds; I assume you brought in soil, how much, and did you rototill it in, shovel, what ??? I'm working on my soul nd curious to know what you have done. Any help/advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I'm on Harstine Island.
    Love your garden.

    1. Hi CLee R! A shovel and a pic were my tools. Since it was a new lot, there was no grassy turf to remove. In some places, I dug holes, removed some rocks and added store bought soil/compost; in other places, I piled soil/compost on the top of the surface. I try to add compost every year. Good luck to you!

    2. Many thanks. I'm adding soil and compost. Your garden is inspiring... especially the pick and shovel part. Lol. At least I know it can be done. Thanks again.

  8. Your garden is beautiful. There are trees, they are acidic and very colorful. Even a squirrel has visited you. I would love to walk by him. I greet and thank you for keeping me in the spirit of the surgery.

  9. Beautiful photography of a lovely garden!

  10. Amazing garden, Tatyana. I love the colors, especially roses and pelargonium.
    Have a nice week!

  11. Aha! Now I see that late summer is the time of bright colors in your garden. Most of the time, it seems green is the primary color!

  12. What a joy to stroll around your July garden, Tatyana. I couldn't pick a favorite scene -- but maybe the one with the bunny and the white astilbe in the background. Stunning posting! P.x


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
