I showed you the hair allium bud a few weeks ago. Here is the allium 'Hair' flower:
The yellow callas in a container that I hid among the flowers are beginning to bloom in the Manhattan lily garden.
These callas are a very bold yellow and I find that they don't play well with other flowers...at least with most other flowers. I have since removed them from this garden. In fact I cut them and brought them inside for a dining room table centerpiece.
The majority of my garden blooms the first two weeks of July. After this flush, it fades fast. So I take a lot of pictures in early July.
I was playing with the two containers of Ninebark that I bought this past weekend, to see if I wanted to buy a couple for the gardens. I liked it in almost every place I tried it, like behind this old milk can full of Guara.
and in back of this area:
That Ninebark is a great backdrop for so many of my flowers.
The Lamb's Ear is blooming:
Lots of daylilies burst open this past weekend.
None of the arbor planters have really taken off yet. So I guess I will have a few things to look forward to later in the season.
I removed this lychnis coronaria (magenta flower on the right side)
If you want to see more gardens, you can continue your garden walk over at Jean's Blooming Tuesday. and Garden Floral Thursday.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
