Flower Flaunting July 23

I haven't joined in at Tootsie's to flaunt my flowers for a while, so I'd better get on it, or summer will be over!
First, Queen Elizabeth Rose, a reliable variety.
Coleus, in a pot, in semi-shade
Swedish Ivy on the lime green bakers rack, with yellow cardinal plant in background.
We bought this large wicker trellis at a garden supply store, and are using it just to fill the wall space above the hostas.
"Endless Summer" hydrangeas, pink and blue (the blue one was fed more copper sulphate)

....and a general view of the back garden.

Enjoy all the other entries in this week's flower postings!

Very nice containers...What a beautiful general view!

A lovely post. I love the whicker trellis, although it wouldn't last long in our garden with all the rain we have in the UK!!

Our hydrangeas have done really well like yours.

Have a very happy weekend,
Jackie in UK.

OH! I love each and every flower you have shown us. Plus the creeping charlie. I used to have one as a houseplant yrs. ago. That is a beautiful rose.

Lovely flowers, Millie! I especially love the pink roses and hydrangeas. Nice trellis too. Have a lovely weekend.

Your roses and flowers are gorgeous, Millie. Your hydrangeas are so pretty, mine are growing so well and I am so happy every time I look at them. One is getting ready to flower, too.
I really like the coleus and yours is so pretty, I don't know why I haven't thought to grow them in my back or front shady yards.
Hugs, Cindy S
