Beautiful! I really like how you have the verbena and ivy together in the pot with the little evergreen tree. And your balloon flower is gorgeous. Happy Bloom Day!

Colleen said...

Everything is so pretty! I love blue-eyed grass, and I'm with Christa...that combo of ivy and verbena is just gorgeous.

Happy Bloom Day!

The Balloon flower looks so captivating.
I can understand your predicament of not having much bloom in July. I was in similar situation with increasing dry heat but thankfully it has started raining since last two days.

Yolanda Elizabet said...

That is quite a list Robin. Love all the pics of your blooms. I see we both have the same verbena! :-) That blue-eyed grass is real pretty!

I hope you'll get some rain soon!

Layanee said...

Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing your blooms!

Carol said...

I really like your clematis, and all your flowers are beautiful. Like you, I wonder what July will be like if we don't get some real rain, soon.

Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Thank you all for vising my blog on Blogger Bloom Day and for the sweet compliments and comments.

Blue eyed grass.. is that the same as flax? Looks like my flax, same flower. I haven't got a pic of it yet, as it refuses to open its flowers in this dark rainy weather we've had recently.
Love the mini rose, it's precious

Robin said...

Salix tree, I don't think it is the same as blue flax (linum perenne). The Blue-eyed grass (Sisyrinchium augustifolium) is from the iris family.

Molly said...

So much in bloom! I love your photos. And the birdbath from planters is brililant.

Salix Tree said...

Ah, I see the difference between flax and blue-eyed grass, I did a google search. It's a lovely plant.

You have some wonderful looking blooms! Here's to rain coming your way, we are supposed to get a sprinkle tonight.
