July Heat

I'm linking to Today's Flowers. I missed out last week because of internet issues, but they've been fixed so I can enjoy so many beautiful places around the world! It's amazing to see other places with just a click or two!
It has been hot. Been cleaning and weeding and moving garden stuff around. The wind blew my spiral off where it had been last year so when I hung it up I put it on my iron wheel. I love how it spins in the wind.
This flax still had a few blooms so it hasn't been cut back yet.
Petunias and zinnias seem to like the heat more than I do.
This is my view out the front door.
Same thing. I've been sanding on the door to get it ready to paint! Wally was the painter, not me.
More happy petunias and alyssum from the High School Future Farmer's group.
The last of the lilies...I moved these from another place last fall and they are doing well now.
It's too hot for my roses, but there are a few buds forming. I tore out the iris that was choked with grass. One blade that I measured was 31" long. Still working on that project and now more work to do to get the iris back in the ground. If you want a closer look, click on the pictures as they will enlarge. ♥♫

Those lilies are stunning and I love your view. Such a sweet and lovely garden you have.

It is so nice to meet someone who gardens in our drier climate! As much as I would love an English country garden, I really do love living in Montana, just as I can tell you love Colorado. I really enjoyed taking a tour of your blog - you have such beautiful flowers! We have quite a few things in common. I love to relax in the gardens, and I, too, taught school for many years (22) mostly kindergarten and a few years in grades 1,2, and 3. I had to stop teaching 9 years ago because of health problems. I love the Lord and I am so thankful for the family He has given me.

So nice to meet you! I hope you get through this heat; we are hot here, also! I'll be back for visits!

Not only do I love your photos, I also love your the spiral on your iron wheel, your iron wheel and all your planter arrangements. Thanks for sharing them today.
