Garden full of purple

Great blue lobelia

The great blue lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) by the pond is starting to bloom.

Purple seems to be the blooming theme of my mid-July garden. The lobelia is starting to bloom, albeit a few days after people visited my garden on the pond tour.


The oregano is putting on quite a show as well. I also have taller oregano with white flowers, but this one is the champion spreader in the garden.

Oakleaf hydrangea - July

The oakleaf hydrangea flowers have changed from white to pinkish purple. The Annabelles are turning from white to green, which always seemed a bit backward to me!
