I am happy to see my lavender hedge blooming right now, because I cut it back pretty drastically this spring and it was looking kind of sad for awhile. However, I have to remember that it is pretty much okay to cut this back at any time--it always comes back. This is mostly the 'Munstead' variety of lavender, with a stray 'Hidcote' (the darker blue) in there too.
There's lots blooming in the garden right now, astilbe, daisies, larkspur, yarrow, coreopsis, still some roses. And all the hydrangeas are just beginning. We''re supposed to get some thunderstorms today--I have hardly had to water at all this year because of all the rain we have had.
