In My June Garden

There are more birds in our garden this year than ever before. So, the birdbath  gets cleaned and refilled often.

The main colors in the garden are purple, blue, pink, red and white with some occasional orange and yellow.

Peony Green Lotus. Not many blooms, but each one has character!

I don't know why, but Allium Christofii  beat other allium varieties in terms of how many bulbs were planted and how many emerged.

Аllium nectaroscordum

Very vigorous perennial phlox, variety is unknown.

I've never seen its flowers, but the leaves are the reason I got this Rhododendron.

Billardiera longiflora


Digitalis on this hill is self-seeded.

This hill behind the house is in the process of a makeover. The table and chairs are placed here temporarily.

All terrace garden is in bloom.

Queen Ann's Lace looks good with a variegated yucca in the background.

Coral Charm Peony

One of my favorites in the garden

Clematis Dr. Ruppel

Schefflera delavayi

The other side of Gunnera

Thank you Lori, for this beautiful vase!

New Magnolia ashei

Poppies are waiting for July to bloom


Thank you Karen, for the Hosta Spilt Milk

 It's easy to spot slugs climbing up these pots in the kitchen garden.

Greens grow well in my not-so-sunny kitchen garden.

As I said, this area is under a makeover. Huge fern was removed from it as well as Japanese anemone.

Gillenia trifoliata, Bowman's Root

 Allium Amplectens Graceful Beauty

White digitalis is so beautiful!


We are making circles. The garden surrounds the house.


Shade garden

One more new Magnolia bloom

 All the plants in two turquoise vases, except petunia, are overwintered in the garden or garage.

There was a nice dense patch of saxifrage stolonophera here... Not any more.

Hosta Sum and Substance


Eremurus is a non-success in my garden. Many plants never return.

Myra McRae Peony

Centranthus ruber, Red Valerian got so spread that I needed to eliminate it, and moved only one plant into another corner.

New marsh orchid

Malva  moschata Alba (Thank you, Patti!) and Filipendula

Campanula uses Agapanthus for support.

Knock-out rose

 Native Lily

New in my garden, Begonia from Shayne Chandler.


Allium Caesium

Echium Russicum

Penstemon and Lobelia tupa


Salvia nemorosa


 Oakleaf hydrangea

Clematis Rooguchi

Pinus strobus Louie

Sun King Aralia

Some of my ferns:

What I see from the back porch.

Thanks for joining me for my June garden walk!
