De kleuren van juli

Het eind van juli is al weer in zicht, dus we hebben de tuin weer rondgelopen met de camera. Wat moet je kiezen? Er is zoveel in deze maand. Gelukkig hebben we in de loop van de maand ook foto's gemaakt, want de eerste planten zijn nu bijna uitgebloeid.
Sue heeft op haar blog Life Looms Large weer een oproep gedaan om onze kleuren te publiceren, dus daar gaan we dan.

The end of July is near already, so we walked around the garden with our camera. What to choose? There is so much this month. Fortunately we took pictures in the course of the month, for several plants have nearly finished flowering by now.
Sue of Life Looms Large has invited us to publish our July colours, so here we go.
gele waterlelie/yellow waterlily

en zijn roze broertje/and its pink brother.
Nog een plant, waarvan ik twee foto's maakte: de clematis, nog een van mijn favorieten. Deze is nu uitgebloeid, helaas, maar hij was prachtig!
Another plant of which I took two pictures: the clematis, another favorite of mine. This red one hasn't any flowers left now, but it was great!
net als deze lila clematis, die nog een paar bloemen heeft
just like this lilac clematis that still has a few flowers left
Ook een beetje lila: de acanthus.
A little lilac as well: the acanthus
achillea mollis
Deze hortensia is nu veel roder, maar hier was hij nog in knop
Now this hydrangea is in full red flower, but it was just getting colour here

Naast de waslijn groeide deze kaardebol. Hoger dan ik ben. Maar zo mooi. Is dit onkruid?
Next to my washing line this teasel (?) is growing. Taller than I am. Is this a weed? It's so pretty.

De rozen blijven maar bloeien. Hier een combinatie met lavendel.
The roses go on and on. Here a combination with lavender.
Er is ook nog iets te eten: kruisbessen
There is also something edible: gooseberries

en zwarte bes
and black currants.

Helaas: de vogels waren er eerder. We hadden nog geluk dat we op tijd waren voor de rode bessen en de frambozen...

Unfortunately the birds were there first. We were lucky because we were in time for the red currants and the raspberries...

Beautiful flowers - esp. love the water lilies and acanthus. There are two types of teasel,the one with little barbs was used for brushing wool cloth to bring up the nap. (blogger isn't letting me change to my wordpress identity...)

Amanda: yes, we do love our garden. There is so much to enjoy.
Mary: all of these in our garden, yes. And much more. And lots of work, too!
LLesley: I'll be enjoying the summer much more when it isn't so hot. It's better now, but still...
Evelyn: Thank you! Blogger can sometimes be difficult when using identities.

I've never seen a yellow waterlily before. It's beautiful. The black currents look yummy. I planted a bush this year but I think it will be a couple of years before we get any. The birds ate my gooseberries this year. Our teasles are looking about the same as yours too!

Marsel zei

Beautiful! I LOVE the water lilies. It's fun to think that you and I had almost the exact same clematis in our yards, in two different parts of the world!

Sharon zei

So many different and gorgeous flowers. I've never seen anything the first three. I know achilla since we have that here and I do believe that's the only plant we have in common! You say it's getting gray now, but your garden is rich with color.

So many beautiful flowers in your garden! I like that your hydrangeas are red....ours are very blue due to the acidic soil here.

Those waterlilies steal the show as far as I'm concerned. I love how delicate and beautiful they are!

Thanks for showing your colors!!
