Welcome to my garden in hardiness zone 10 on the south coast of Portugal.
Summer has arrived with a vengeance and after a heat wave, some of my July blooms are having a hard time.
|The little rose bush I bought at Algoz market at the beginning of May is settling in nicely|
|This rose is starting to bloom again|
|Surrounded by santolina|
I had 2 rose bushes in pots, waiting for an opening in the garden - now I have four! I guess more lawn will have to go!
|Heady scent for the veranda|
Unperturbed by the heat
|A hub of insect activity|
|A blue flower, finally|
|Peachy oleander still going strong|
|This variegated oleander is looking good|
|Colourful bed reclaimed from the lawn - a work in progress|
I plan to plant two roses bushes in this new bed, as soon as I can take out some more grass.
The side and back patios look much the same as they did in June, so that's it, folks, time to visit May Dreams Gardens where the Bloom Day bloggers all link up.
