July Bloom Day

Well it's bloom day.  This is the time of month that garden blogger's around the world show what is blooming their garden and post it on May Dreams Gardens.  Today I have been feeling a bit under the weather for easons unknown.... I have been lazy in the garden lately or distracted I should say.  However this morning, I made sure I took some pictures.
Drift Roses....thankfully self cleaning.

Moss Roses

Camellias make these fruit?  I suppose it is the seed pods?

The roses are in desperate need of pruning

 Look at all the rose hips

 Weeds that are taking over the paths....they are getting a weeding overhaul next week, thankfully.

Wild morning glory can be pretty

 The real distractions have stemmed from family (my father is going to be okay, thankfully).  I have been training Desdemona, a six month old german shepherd she is catching a frisbee..
And repainting the interior rooms in which I hate the colors....I have been faux painting.....ah well....I'll get there.

It has been so hot here, I haven't done anything much outside.
Your roses are lovely as always.
Great action photo of the dog!
Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Sometimes, life gets in the way of our gardening and it looks like you have your hands full with the roses! Do you use the rose hips?
Good news that your Dad is ok and I love your walls!
Happy Gardening!

Too hot to garden, indoor projects are good.

Those little 'apples' on your camellia are seed pods. In the fall they open up to reveal 3 or 4 big seeds. Catch them before they open completely so you don't lose the seeds. Plant them somewhere that you won't dig them up or put them in little pots of soil and label so you don't throw them out. They will come up the next year or the next. In about ten years you will have a beautiful Camellia with blooms like none you've seen before because it will be a hybrid of your own growing. I have some 15 year old seedlings that are 6 feet tall and some 3 year old seedlings that are a foot tall and growing.
