It's the 15th of the month which means it's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. July is when all my daylilies start blooming. My daylilies are all pass-along plants so I have no clue what their names are.
This post was thrown together rather quickly because I have been cleaning up debris from a bad storm that moved through Ohio last week. Some of my flowers were flattened, but not the daylilies!
I just didn't have time to get pictures of all of them.
This is one of my favorites and it's especially beautiful after the rain which has been plentiful this year!

Hydrangeas are starting to bloom.
Annabelle Hydrangea before last weeks storm......
Garden Phlox, Liatris or Blazing Star, and the Rudbeckia is just starting to bloom in the background.
Liatris is unusual in that it blooms from the top down which makes it a great cut flower, because as the old flowers on top begin to look spent, you can snip them off and the stalk will continue to bloom further down the stem.
Yes...I know they are messy and invasive but this is the first year it's blooming since I planted it five years ago. It was free and I'll enjoy it for a few years, and if or when it gets too bad we will get rid of it. The blooms are pretty and it's unusual to see a tree in bloom in July.
