Our Garden In July - Il Nostro Giardino in Luglio

Italytuttotoptenpost BadgeTop ten Posts From the Bloggers in Italy

Another month has flown by and it is time once again for me to share some of my favourite garden photos from the last month with you. Once again I have had difficulty selecting just a few from the many I have taken over the last few weeks. Around 200 again this month, it is just too easy with digital photography.

The interested gardeners and photographers amongst you will find the full album on Flickr.  Our Garden in July

Here then are my favourite eight photographs from the month of July for you to enjoy. I found it very difficult once again to choose so they are smaller than normal, which I do not think does them full justice. You know where to look if you want to see them in their full glory. These are definitely my favourites today but if I look again tomorrow I think some of them would be different.  My extra special favourites this month have already been shared with you here in my Persian Acacia post and also four of them on Beautiful World the new collective blog that I am contributing to.

I will also post one of my choices today over on Beautiful World why not go over there and see which one it is when you have a minute or two to spare.



Ornamental Leek

Pomegranate flower


Dandelion Seedhead




I am not going to be posting a Friday Foto or a Sunday Song Post this weekend as we are busy with guests staying and lots of festas going on, so there will be plenty of News From Italy to catch you up with later on next week. Meanwhile click on the blue for links to three of my favourite posts from recent months.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.


  1. beautiful! I'm not sure if I've even seen a kiwi on a tree!

  2. Beautiful photos, as always, Linda. I especially like the agapahthus and the pomegranate flowers. Sounds like you have a busy weekend planned - have a wonderful time!

  3. I just love agapanthas, we had so many in the garden in S.Africa, both blue and white. When we make the final move here and I have more time to keep an eye on the garden, I must get some.

    Have a good weekend with your guests. Diane

  4. I'm always amazed by the variety of plants and flowers you have, exotic and colorful. Love that dandelion! Thanks so much for sharing and have a lovely weekend with your guests. – g
