My Garden in Late July

I wish I could bottle the smell of my garden and put it on this blog or Facebook.

The garden is now a mature garden, which means moving some things around each year and filling some “holes,” but mostly it just needs mulch, fertilizer some times, weeding, and watering.

The white Annabelles are just crazy this year.

After mowing in the cool of the late afternoon the other day, I took pics of them and then could not stop.

So here’s my garden in late July:

The far “hedge” is a mixture of raspberries (up front), Rugosa Roses, Bay, and wildflowers.

The veggie garden is struggling this year with the cool weather and more shade as the trees below have filled out even more.

I weeded the rock paths yesterday.  Weeds LOVE rocks.

This garden needs weeding and some deadheading.

Work of the gold bug beetle.  See an earlier post for a picture of one.

    • My “Endless Summer” hydrangeas didn’t bloom for the past two years either. Too cool and rainy I think. They are gorgeous this year though.
