A few pics from July

I finally have a few photos to share of my garden from July, though things are a bit late this year in bloom time. Main show should be happening by the end of the month.

Very pretty. I love it "packed" with flowers. What is that statue? :)

Tess, didn't you post a picture of your shed bed a while back wondering what to do with it? Looks to me like you have done a wonderful job. Everything looks so pretty. Is that Walker's Low catmint I see in one of your beds? I have several and I especially love the greyish green coloration of the leaves against the light lavender blooms. Mine have been in bloom since May...great plant.

Thanks! Yes I did post about the shed bed. I'm still not satisfied with it. The daisies are huge this year and are swamping other plants. They will be moving to the back of the bed next spring. Plus we haven't gotten around to seeding the lawn in front and to the south of the shed bed (the drought kinda nixed that this spring) so now I'm planning on extending the bed maybe 20' further south and widening it. There was a thread on the Perennial forum about orange and yellow beds which has me inspired. Haven't told DH yet but it'll be less grass for him to seed! The statue hiding amongst the lavender is a small budha, he was a wedding present. You're supposed to rub his tummy for good luck apparently.
