July 2020 Blooms
Dahlia 'Cafe au Lait'
Rose 'Rouge Royale':
'Munstead Wood''s color is not as dark as it is in spring, but still, swoony-good.
Teucrium chamaedryoides is a favorite of bees
Grevillea 'Ned Kelly'
From South Africa, Erica verticillata is coming into flower. This was an experiment as I was unsure what this plant wants, but so far it has done well.
The beginning of Lagerstroemia season. 'Ebony Blush'
Against a very blue sky.
'Ebony Embers' crimson is echoed by the red new foliage of Leucadendron 'Reverse Polarity'
A foliage aside: 'Wilson's Wonder' looks better and better as it matures:
Red again in 'Altissimo'...
...and 'Top Gun'.
The dainty flowers of Echeveria 'Imbricata'
'Merlot Magic' might be the name of this one.
One of the Garvinea Gerberas
Name Unknown Fuchsia

Consider the expression in their great big brown puppy-dog eyes. They never look at me like that.
Hoping your July is flowery.
