Garden Bloggers Bloom Day July 2014

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.

Liatris coming to life

Mallow. It's moving around the garden!

This lovely huge Hosta is a 2nd year plant. I'm so glad it's in bloom.
The Phlox are opening!
Is this a Potentilla? I originally thought it was but it doesn't look like the one displayed in the gardening book. Anyway, it blooms in early spring and I'm surprised to see a second flush.

This looks so much like a Balloon Flower but the leaves are wrong and it's smaller.........

Good ole Yarrow.....it takes a lickin' n comes back tickin'!

Globe thistle in all it's glory!

Beauty Berry is blossoming. This was a gift from Fran and is in it's 3rd year in the garden.

Such an unassuming little flower.....a huge garden thug! Japanese/Chinese Lanterns. They are in a container now but started taking over the garden. I'm still fighting them.

This pic doesn't do this daylily justice! The color is amazing.
When I realized it was GBBD I ran around the garden looking for something I hadn't posted yet. That was hard to do! I've posted a lot lately. I hope you enjoy this stroll through my garden as much as I enjoy visiting yours! 
Happy Gardening, Flower Freak

So many pretty things this time of year in your garden.

Beauty Berry was planted by birds next to my improvised patio. I decided to leave it. It's in a grove of Sassafras.

Lovely globe thistle. This is one flower that I've never tried to grow. Wish I could identify your mystery flowers, but I can't. Good luck!
