What's blooming in the garden on the 15th of the month.
The perennials are in full swing, with some beginning to fade as the annuals take over. Oh, and the vegetable garden is beginning to produce.
I resisted the temptation to flood this post with photos of the same beauties that bloom every year and are already posted. Only a few new rookie notables are included this month like the millet - winning my affection as the best new plant of the year in my garden.
As usual, you can find other garden bloggers' July bloom days at the blog May Dreams Gardens.
