Red Bee Balm or Monarda double-decker. A lovely little freak of nature.

Now is the prefect time to look for those holes in your garden beds and fill them in with a fabulous Monarda or lily.

The nurseries and garden centers (and fronts of many local grocery stores) are popping with varieties from which to choose.

The plants are in bloom at the centers and it’s fun to add  a little instant color to a space that needs s jolt.

Keep them watered well to preserve the blooms.

daylily 'melon'

This cute little fellow was simply marked 'Melon.' Very refreshing.

The humble daylily is a workhorse in the July border. It works well to smatter them throughout for dots of color. When the bloom time is past, the leaves recede into the landscape.
