The floral show continues in June with daylilies and more coming along. I am delighted with these snapdragons, so many pretty colors and such a profusion of blooms.
Medium pink above, and the lighter pink below are side by side. The yellow ones behind are coming into bloom too.
Of course, I love the purity of the white ones.
On the veranda, I need to cut this geranium back and root the cuttings, but it is blooming so well I have been reluctant to do this yet.
In another pot, the purple pansies are still showing their happy faces.
The golden celosia and little tiny pansies are doing well in their birdcage planter.
I am a bit disappointed in my choice of these pansies for the hanging baskets. They are flowering OK, but not filling in as nicely as I had hoped. I think I’ll make another trip to the big box store and get something to fill in the pots a bit better. I miss the torenias, but they just have gotten too pricey.
In another pot that I overplanted a bit, the pansies are looking fuller.
Speaking of overplanting, LOL, I think I put too much in my veggie garden. I’m not sure, but I think that is a pumpkin vine heading down to the sidewalk. The tomatoes are over 3 feet high and covered in blooms.
The squash plants are also covered in blooms, can’t wait to have fresh veggies for the table.
The day lilies are starting to bloom now. This deep burgundy one with a yellow throat was the first to appear.
Now the peach color ones are blooming too.
The white lily is going to bloom again too. I planted this bulb in the garden when I was given it as an Easter lily some years ago. It has faithfully given me one beautiful bloom in June every year since.
The hydrangeas are starting to bloom, and once again they are periwinkle blue to light lavendar.
I added a bit of lime to the top to hopefully push them a bit more purple or pink. This one is peeking through the stair railing.
Newer blooms are more lavendar. We’ll see how they progress as the blooms mature.
Back to the veranda, the bargain impatiens have grown up, filling in the pots and blooming nicely.
I love how charming this deep purple petunia looks, growing out of the pot in my little wheeled cart. Looks a bit French or English country, doesn’t it?
Out in the forest, the mountain laurel is about done, and the dogwoods have finished their displays. The blackberry bushes are setting fruit for the wildlife to eat. My peach tree in the back was storm damaged in the spring and has died. The other peach tree growing next to the retaining wall has a few peaches on it, but I don’t think they will be very good as that one doesn’t get enough sun to ripen the fruit well. What is going on in your garden?
