July means lilies for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day which show off their colors in spite of Connecticut's long stretch of high humidity and temperatures in the 90's.
The first half of June dropped 10 inches of rain on my Connecticut garden, making the days leading up to June 2013 Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day soggy. Temperatures remain in the 50's at night and 70's during the day when, so often, the sun struggles to shine.
Spring 2013 continues to take a slow journey toward summer. Chilly temperatures hold on – it dropped to 38 degrees early this morning – but weather forecasts promise warmer temperatures are moving into Connecticut. For this Garden Blogger's Bloom Day, sponsored by Carol at May Dreams Gardens, my gardens are dotted with typically early spring blooms and filled with promising buds.
