What's Blooming at the Cottage - Mid-July

It's the middle of July, the middle of summer and the temperatures are hot! Yesterday my indoor thermomter said my front porch was this:

That temp below, 82.4, was indoors where the air conditioning could not keep up.

Daisy, the kitty, took it easy:

"What? I'm cooling my belly!"

So, what's blooming?

Let's take a peek...

Glads and tall phlox.

Purple bee balm with petunias.

Our newest bee balm in a pinkish raspberry color. This one seems to be most popular with the bees.

This patch of coneflowers almost hides the neighbors ugly chain link fence.

This daylily just keeps pumping out the blooms!

Happy gardening!
