June in the Garden

8 Comments

June in the garden has most of the potted plants getting bigger, and the flowers are still going. I put a white lobelia in the watering can, and it is doing well, now trailing nicely.

Yellow lantana with blue lobelia, and a geranium with a different variety of lobelia, both doing well.

The day lilies are really coming out with profuse blooms on every plant. The hydrangea is visible in this shot too.

Getting some close shots of all the different varieties. These will keep going for weeks. This deep peach with a yellow throat is very attractive to the bees.

There is a yellow with a dark purple throat.

And the opposite, dark purple with a yellow throat.

I continue to be amazed at the profusion of blooms on the hydrangea.

They continue to spill between the rails of the fencing along the steps.

I love the lavendar color of these blooms!

The pot with the fairy stairs is doing well, the geranium is about to bloom again. The yellow petunias and purple verbena just continue to bloom every day.

Yippee, I might actually get tomatoes this year!

The disappointing thing is that neither the gladiolas nor the irises bloomed at all. I have no idea why. I’ll fertilize them both this year and hope for blooms next year.

The little lobelia in my thrift store pot is growing and blooming like crazy.

The impatiens are just getting huge, and blooming profusely, so nice in the shade of the veranda.

My johnny jump-ups are coming along, hoping for some blooms in the future.

One last look at the goldfinches wearing summer colors.

  1. Beautiful flowers growing! Love all he variety.

  2. Picked up some black-eyed susans today on sale and I can’t wait to plant them. I hope they do well in a sunny spot perfect for the butterflies and bees. Your flowers are doing very nicely. Have always found the lobelia to be a favorite with its gentle beauty.

  3. The fabulous photos and close-ups are like a walk in your garden…..beautiful. My day lillies are blooming, but I don’t have the varieties that you have in your colorful garden. Oh, the yippee tomato…..I’m applauding it !

  4. Lovely garden flowers and planters! Isn’t it too early for your glads to be blooming? Ours don’t bloom until later in the Summer. I have a clump of iris that didn’t bloom this year as well. Not sure why, but am thinking of dividing them to see if they do better next year. My Mock Orange bush is in fragrant, spectacular bloom with it’s fragrant white flowers. Roses are still blooming away, though the first flush of blooms are finished on some. My tomatoes are going gangbusters this year, and the beans are coming along well. And I’m thrilled with the HUMUNGOUS (over a foot long!) white blooms on my white brugmansia plant, growing in my whiskey barrel.

    LOVE your hydrangea bush; so glad it bloomed for you this year. Mine are now just coming into bloom. Love picking them for bouquets (and drying some every year, to keep them in vases & baskets for the Winter).

    Happy gardening!

  5. Your flowers are lovely. A lot of my iris didn’t bloom this year either? I don’t know what’s up with that but I’ll do as you and add some compost to the soil too to see if that helps them next spring.

  6. Good Evening Carole! Sorry to be so late, but I had a Doctors appointment concerning my arthritis and then went and spent time with my father, before coming home. Mr. Shakes and Miss Dodger go into this super excited stage of greeting us that is so funny yet quite annoying at the same time. After they calm down, it is time to begin watering either the garden or the flower beds. Tonight it was the gardens turn. But, I always enjoy the flowers each and every day. Right now the Day Lilies are my favorites with their stems reaching out so high towards the sun. But each flower has its own strength and beauty. Thank you so much for sharing all of your splendid beauties with us. They are all growing strong and looking so beautiful. I have got to find me an old watering can and an old wagon to plant flowers in, they just add so much character. I still have not gotten my lilacs or snowball bushes bought this year. But, little by little it is all coming together. Thank you again for sharing all of your glorious photos and fabulous details! They all brightened my evening! Hope that you have a fantastic creative evening!

  7. Beautiful! and your quilt is amazing! Enjoy your break-
    Jenna

  8. amazing photo’s. My daylillies are blooming in spite of my neglect! The iris might need another year to really get strong enough to bloom.

During Autumn Jubilee it may not be possible to personally answer the comments, but be assured I read and appreciate each and every one. Good luck in the drawings!!
