Tanya's Flower Garden in Mid-July

The climbing roses that were so lovely a month ago are finished and all the lilies are blooming.  Their heavy scent fills the air.  The gladiolas are just starting and Tanya was out staking and tying them today - they are so tall this year, with all the rain we had for two weeks and then a week of heat.  

The day we got home from Bulgaria, she started working the flower beds over.  There isn't a day goes by that she isn't trimming and pruning or pulling weeds. It is looking pretty good now.


  1. Beautiful! I don't know why I'm always surprised to see so many of my favorite garden standbys in Tanya's garden - I guess I always think that because you're practically on the other side of the globe everything will be different. :-)

    1. Parallel of Latitude is the key. Kyiv and Regina are exactly on the same parallel. We are about 400 km south of Kyiv. We also have milder winters because of the relative proximity of the Black Sea.
