Every time Friday is here I can't believe another week is over, time just flies by so fast. I can't believe it's already the middle of July. It seems like I was just out looking for signs of growth in the garden and now it's in full bloom.
Here is some of what's happening today in the garden:
This container is making me sad. I planted it two months ago in Miracle Gro soil, it's gets watered and part sun. Why won't these plants grow? It's driving me crazy.
Every time the littlest gardener comes outside with me, and I do mean every time, she picks a cute little bouquet. She hands them to me and each time says, "These are for your Mother's Day." We've got little bouquets all over now. I think she makes some great combinations.
I love Liatris 'Kobold' and so do the bees. I moved this one a few months ago to the butterfly garden, I think it likes all the new soil.
Echinacea 'Green Envy' in full bloom. It's really pretty I think.
The window boxes under the dining room window have gone a little crazy. We had a lot of wind a couple of weeks ago and it blew the Snapdragons down. Now they hang over and bloom up like the petunias. These planters are above the Daphne 'Summer Ice' and between the Daphne and the petunias it smell so good.
The Water Hyacinth I showed in yesterday's post bloomed overnight. Isn't it beautiful?! Two have bloomed and I'm so happy about it.

I hope next Friday doesn't sneak up as fast!
We are working on our deck this weekend, a pretty big project, so I may not be around a lot. Hopefully the weather will continue to hold so we can get it all finished.
