My July Garden Pictures

As always, pictures are in chronological order so the same plants or parts of the garden can appear again and again.

 Rooguchi is a new addition to my garden

 'Endless summer' never fails

 Terrace Garden or Cutting Garden

 Oakleaf Hydrangea

 Campanula 'Pink Octopus' reblooming

 It's better to plant it higher so that you can see the inside of the blooms

 The Front Bed has never been so colorful. The secret - more annuals!

 Rose Campion  got on my approval list not so long ago, but now I like it very much!

 Do you see that big clump of Hakonechloa to the right from the brown planter?
It was put there after two boxwood, one after another, almost died in that spot. It is something in the soil in that particular spot that they didn't like. But, the grass is getting bigger and bigger there.

 A clump of simple daisies lightens up a border

 Linaria purpurea makes nice subtle splashes here and there

 Ilex hedge needs regular trimming as it has reached its optimal height.

Romneya flowers look exactly like fried eggs. Good thing is I love eggs sunny-side up!

 A part of the sidewalk leading to the garage side door got hidden by grown plants

 'Oregon Pride'

 Shade Garden

 Poor coleus got badly damaged by slugs in this spot and needed to be moved somewhere higher.

 My new Sum and Substance is doing good

 I got this hydrangea at a local Plant Swap. The label said Salem. 
I failed to find a hydrangea with such name. Have you ever heard about it?

 This plant was later eaten by a deer, as well as the hosta in the red pot; see below

 Unfortunately, this Thalictrum doesn't self seed

 I find this picture funny as it shows different types of poppies. Yes, I admit that at some point in the spring I was randomly scattering seeds in the Terrace Garden.

 Parsley is one of those plants which I allow to seed freely

Eremurus (Foxtail Lily) is not an easy plant for me, but this one is doing pretty well.

 Little charmer... spread, spread!

 New in my garden

 Purple sage is happy here

 These blooms are on small hydrangea which I grow from cuttings. The parent plant is below:

 Can't wait to see Agapanthus blooming!

 I am patting my shoulder while looking at this front bed...

 Japanese Anemone is an invader, and it's time to start paying  better attention to it...

 Reminder for myself: stake all the tall plants in the Terrace Garden!!!

 Two types of plants with different water needs coexist nicely here

 Hydrangea macrophilla 'Izu no Hana'

 In the July heat, magnolia flowers became chocolate color almost the next day after opening

 Seven dollar Canna from a grocery store has been doing fine for the second season in a row

I know, this is probably the most photographed part of my garden this season...

July was a good month for my garden.
