Our giant lilies asre just coming out. We've several dotted around the garden. They dfon't get any special attention, they just come up every year. We don't pick them and bring them indoors as the pollen will stain any fabrics. It's too much bother to rwemove the stamens.

This is the first monsoon season I can remember that actually gave us a lot of rain in the desert. Projected to rain all week here! Unfortunately, you can see the sunflowers are winding down :-/ but they did bring some amazing songbirds over to hang out over the last 2 months so can’t complain.

I'm very pleased with the growth of the new white wisteria we bought two years ago and the two self layered blue ones of the old one on tjhe garage wall that died apart from the branch that goes along the top of the fence and on the pergola on the back of the house.

We've gone from this in 2019.

To this today. Almost a solid canopy of foliage over the pergola.. It took some coaxing and regular pruning.

Our giant lilies are mostly out now. But with the ones against the garage wall I've removed the stamens as if you brush against them the pollen will stain your clothess.

I'm pleased with this hydrangia, fully recovered from the frost three months ago that nearly killed it.

Not so many roses blooming at the moment, but there's more to come.

Phlox are winding down, lilies are starting to bloom and rebeckia are coming on. Now to keep up with the watering on newly transplanted perennials as we incorporate more grass spaces into the yard and take out perennial beds. Starting year two of the transformation.

@Perki here is my Sanguisorba... how tall is your plant now? This is only supposed to grow up to about a metre, but -

I think I should have divided this one, but with all the new beds out front, the back garden has been a bit neglected. I have lots of dividing to do there, and will be able to transplant into the new borders.....I wish I was 20 years younger though. Many plants are taller than usual this summer, maybe because we had more rain earlier on - but not half a mile high, we need binoculars to see the flowers (or a ladder) Sanguisorbas and Persicarias are so good with grasses, but although our favourite nursery around here has a huge selection of stock, we never find those.
