July too was, as June, so, so warm and sunny. I either read or heard it was the warmest ever. So when it dropped from the about 29-33 Celsius we had for weeks, the about 20 which is more normal here, now actually feels cold. Here are some July photos. I have the same photos posted on Instagram. Be well and safe you all !
Some years ago there was plenty of these orange lilies in the flower bed. I am so pleased to find there still are two stems of them. Both with several flowers. I think it was a mistake to a few years ago plant the two small bushes of ‘Ölandstok’ / Dasiphora fruticosa in the same bed. They have grown and take a lot of the space. I am going to move them to an other place. My husband says it is a bad idea. That they probably will not survive the move. I hope they will. Because I have found, in my opinion, a much better place for them.
My orange pollen free lilies are the first of my lilies to bloom. In fact they are the only pollen free I have. I now am awaiting for four others to bloom too. The Strawberry Candy Lily, so far, has no buds. I really hope I soon will be able to see some. Last year it looked like the Catherine Woodberry was gone. But, this summer, in the same place where it was, is a new plant. I’m so much looking forward to see if it is the Woodberry. Then there are two others that I don’t know the names of. The other one had one flower last year. A very beautiful one in yellow and a dark color which looked almost black. It will be interesting to see what the fourth one will look like.
