Over the years July has consistently meant lily time on our hillside. Some like the Anastastia pictured above are rampant growers and others are singular specimens. Almost have wonderful fragrance that makes you turn your head as you walk by. This year I failed to do a good job of tying up the Anastasia, which want to be 8-10 feet tall, and so they are flopping over the fence. But large segments come into the house for closer appreciation.
Of course a gardener cannot live on lilies alone. Other flowers abound.
In the alpine bed, the same gentians that were just starting last month continue to be in flower.
In the greenhouse the Haemanthus that appeared in bloom for the first time last year are once again flowering.

Well, that’s a summary of where we are on this very dry Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day. No rain for several weeks now, and hoping for a thunderstorm tomorrow….
