July flowers

I think this is the easiest time I've ever had finding things to put in July's mosaic! There is no shortage of little flowering gems tucked away in the garden. My winter bouquet in the middle square is comprised of rose hips, cyclamen, penstemon foliage, wintersweet, hellebores and even a rogue delphinium. Around the garden I have lots of polyanthus and pansies, camellias and daphne, and the first of the hellebores are opening softly. So there's no trouble finding things to pick and bring indoors.

How is your garden flowering this month? Head over to May Dreams Gardens for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day and get some inspiration!


  1. I wish I could put together a winter bouquet like that. Holly and greens about do it for Massachusetts, US.

  2. Beautiful collage. Pansies are my favorite for winter color. Miss Billie always said to plant yellow, but blue and pastels are better.

  3. What a pretty collage with soft coloured flowers, I love cyclamens and primroses, and despite being in the middle of a heat wave here in London, my primroses are still flowering – in July! I also have a hellebore that is a bit confused, it flowers twice every year, with maroon flowers in the winter and pink flowers in the summer, it has just started to produce its summer flowers, so you see, we are at the opposite sides of the world, but we still have the same plants in flower right now :-)
    Happy GBBD!

  4. Well, somehow I missed your GBBD post, but I am catching up now.
    Lots of pretty blooms!
    I am especially fond of Cyclamen and Hellebores.
    Have a wonderful day!

  5. Very impressive! I wish I had as much blooming in my winter garden as you have in yours! Great combination of flowers.
