July 2016 Flower Roundup

Today is the last day of July.   Another ending.

These words stare back at me from the almost-blank screen of my new blog post setup page.

Another month has flown out of my life.  Another month has brought us in upstate New York closer to the dreaded winter.

Another month of flowering beauty has passed, captured by my iPhone.  Here are some highlights (note, only the flowers that I say are mine are mine):
Lilies at a Finger Lakes winery July 2.

One of my lilies, July 10.

Bee Balm, Binghamton.

A petunia in my front yard, the third week of July.
A zinnia just starting to open up in our community garden July 24.

Our hostas in bloom, July 15.

Day Lily "Pink Monday", Cutler Botanic Gardens.

And finally, lilies from a walk yesterday in Binghamton.

Tomorrow, August begins.  A new beginning for us all.  May it treat you well.
