July in your garden...

Last evening I had a visitor


And the project is coming along. I am leaving the vertical garden as is for a couple of days before adding another layer.

Thanks, Tazman. The cannas in the photo look very much like mine; they are called African Sunset, and I've had them for years. They are well worth the trouble of overwintering. Each year I divide them and give some away.

Lovely photos, Tazman, your clematis are impressive, and I particularly like the cannas.

We are having a little heat wave at the moment, and I was deligted today to see the first blooms on my iris ensata.[sp?] I had forgotten what they were supposed to look like!

Love the climbing hydrangea--mine is still small and has yet to bloom.

Well, my concrete is poured in the cool of the morning--not a job I like to do in the hot sun. So it's more digging and moving rocks and soil--can't wait to plant my first vertical garden! Won't have to buy plants--have lots of hens and chicks, echiversa and other succulents already. I have one called Mexican Jellybeans--don't know if it's hardy, but we'll find out!

I live on an island on the west coast of Canada, between Vancouver and Victoria.  Our weather is similar to yours.

Too hot for mixing concrete--but I have another terrace done -well, except for soil-and am hiding out in the house with a cold glass of cider. Thank goodness for the ocean breeze. I would be perfectly content if the weather stayed like this. Supposed to have a good few days.

Lovely photos--looks like another sunny day here. Just finished watering, then it's back to the construction project. It's concrete day.

Hello all--glad to hear you are getting some sun too--another lovely day here, and looks like more to come, finally. I actually ate my first ripe strawberry yesterday!

Today's plan is to work on terracing the steps up to the garden door--can't wait to begin working on my vertical garden! But lots of rocks to move first.

Summer is due to arrive here the day after tomorrow. Pehaps then my strawbwerris will ripen.
