Back driveway

July flowers back driveway

This is what the west end of the house looks like in mid-July 2016. June’s studio, at least a bit of it, is to the right. The tree with a Treegator at its base in the lower left is a persimmon planted two years ago for us by Friends of Trees. The brightest bloomers  beneath the persimmon are zinnias. Despite being scorched by unusual heat in May, the tall lilies against the house by the window recovered during a moderate June and an unusually cool and wet July. The bunches of yellow flowers in front of the lilies are coreopsis. There’s an elderberry in the mix and some colorful annuals along the front of the bed.
