A corner of our terrace.
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. Just under 200 again this month, it is just too easy to get carried away with digital photography but I do enjoy myself. Did you spot me in the first photograph?
The interested gardeners and photographers amongst you will find the full album on Flickr. Our Garden - July 2011
Agapanthus have put on a beautiful display for the entire month.
Another plant providing splashes of blue in the garden this month has been Plumbago, the colour is so intense I just had to show you a close up.
The Crape Myrtle has flowered really well this year and what a stunning colour!
You will notice in the above photos of the hibiscus trees that we were not the only ones enjoying them!
Our Garden is also just as much about productive plants as it is about colour so I must, I feel include a few produce shots.
This month we have enjoyed plums, greengages and some very early pears as well as these delicious peaches.
The orto (vegetable plot) though has not been producing very well at all this year, enough for two of us but not much in the way of surplus crops apart from courgettes and we have no real idea why. We are growing three different varieties of tomatoes and these cherry tomatoes are producing the most fruit so far.
Finally it looks like the apple harvest will be another bumper crop.

Welcome to ‘News From Italy’ to the other participants of Post of the Month Club, thankyou for calling by. I hope you have found some pleasure in sharing photos from my garden in Italy, a popular regular post that I hope will encourage you to call by again. I have made so many virtual friends from around the world via this blog, such a friendly network of people, many that also have blogs of their own that they publish for a multitude of different reasons.
I will not be posting here on News From Italy again until sometime early next week as my cousin is staying at the moment and I shall want to spend time with her not blogging, although I may have a book review ready to post over on LindyLouMac's Book Reviews during the week. I will also continue to post a daily photo on Beautiful World maybe you will join me there.
