July was a warm, sunny month for us in Northern Ireland and the flowers have enjoyed the unexpected long periods of good weather. During July the average high temperature was 22C / 72F - might not sound that warm to those living in other countries but for Ireland it's really great weather (we don't have the need for air conditioning).
Looking over my photos for July, I thought I'd share some of my best flower photos for the month. Many of these plants are still in flower - roses, petunias, etc are great for their long flowering periods.
|L-R: Climbing rose, aquilegia (grown from seed), rose, petunia.|
|L-R: Aquilegia x 2 (grown from seed), chives, leek flowers (grown from seed).|
|L-R: Petunia, astilbe, foxglove, delphinium (grown from seed).|
|L-R: Dog rose, unknown, sedum, silverdust/cineraria (grown from seed).|
|L-R: Nasturtium x 2, Calendula, lupin - (all of these where grown from seed).|
|I just love the delphinium (grown from seed) and the background of our July blue sky!|
May all your blooms be bold and bountiful!
