July’s garden inspiration features Normi Spadafore’s garden. Her well-established  perennial garden of 18 years was inspired by her wish for year-round color. Seen blooming in this picture are bright pink dianthus, mauve Lenten rose, deep purple iris and light blue salvia. Later in the season, lilies, hostas and sedum will bloom, just to mention a few. Normi adds interest to her garden by incorporating statues, rocks, eye-catching art and a container of potted pink petunias.
