July in the garden - flowers

 The small patch beneath the front window is now covered in flowers - hardy geraniums at ground level and pyracantha blossoms above.

Feverfew  - which I started growing as a herb but quickly decided its flowers were pretty enough to be a 'flower'.

more colourful and heavenly scented flowers on the sweetpeas

stunning lilies - and no signs of lily beetle this year.

a pot of marigolds - not really that unusual but it's often difficult to get them to grow here as the slugs and snails eat them too quickly
 Sweet williams flowering for the first year - it's a long while since I last had these in my garden and they're lovely.

full to overflowing borders - dominated by foxglove spires

 pink scented rose

 and the creamy one being encouraged to climb the birch tree

one of my garden centre rescues doing well
