Lilies are the leading ladies of the landscape during July. Other showy growers right now: squash and cukes, plus tomato plants growing like, well, weeds, though not many of us have seen anything red yet.

Your photos from the past week came from Schroon Lake, Plattsburgh, Tupper Lake Junction, Keene and parts unknown but definitely on NCPR’s landscape.

Here’s a gallery of gorgeous photos from flower and vegetable gardens sent in by NCPR friends.

Ken and Barb Adams garden in Plattsburgh. Flowers abound.

Many of you know George DeChant’s photographs from his contributions to our Photo of the Day feature. I’m assuming these garden photos were taken in his hometown of Saranac Lake.
