On my June 7 post, I wrote about some picket fence I had picked up curb side and what I had done with the gate. Now, I've found a use for the shorter section of fence. I've planted a Duchess of Edinburgh clematis vine in front of it and hope it attaches on and takes off. We'll have to see what happens next year at bloom time.
My old fashioned phlox are blooming, along with the drumstick allium, coneflowers, and the day lilies are putting on their show.
Although I'm not fond of the blooms, my hostas are going gangbusters. I'll cut the blooms off when I can stand to be out in the heat that has hit us this week.
We've been busy the past few days putting mulch down in the flower beds. It has been so hot and windy that everything is drying out so fast!

I hope you are able to stay cool and yet enjoy your gardens. Thank you Jean for hosting Bloomin' Tuesday! Stop over and look at the other gardens posting this week.
