It’s been rainy here but today in June, the sun blooms. Purple podded peas … blooming in the sun.
Also in the Potager, herbs like chives and thymes are in flower. Borage is on the brink.
Chamomile (and Vetch) running rampant.
A first, Ornamental Clover, Trifolium Rubens, just beginning to bloom. (Last year the rabbits mowed it down.)
Just beginning, the first drops of Oenothera, in the Bird & Butterfly Garden (a blue and yellow stage along with Lady’s Mantle, Cranesbill).
Baptisia Twilite Prairieblues …
The Woodland Edge in its “Pink Fairy” stage with Tradescantia varieties brought to me by Jean’s Garden.
Jack in the Pulpit lingers in the shadows.
Flowering Raspberry, Rubus odoraus, is buzzing and vibrating with bees. Listen.
Meadow phlox, Phlox maculata or Wild Sweet William is loaded.
Flanked by Northern Blue Flag Iris.
Opposite the Woodland Edge, in new Hosta Row, Heucheras ‘Caramel’ and ‘Pinot Blanco’ soak up the sun.
Gazania Kiss Frosty Mix, kissed by the sun, out front where the sun is full.
Superfinia Petunia Lavender Lace in a window box.
A sweet seat on the front porch next to what I’ve dubbed as “hummingbird honey suckle.”
On the other side you can see the waterfall of blooms.
Sitting on the front porch you can take in the scent of Dianthus Greystone.
Chives and Catmint Walker’s Low line the sidewalk.
Common Milkweed is just beginning to bloom (IN the sidewalk), but I’ve yet to see a Monarch here in my garden.
If I were a Monarch, I would visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens for a great list of blooming gardens on Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day.
