I realize I am a few days early - Garden Bloggers Bloom Day is on Sunday - but I have a very busy weekend coming up so I thought I'd post early rather than late.
Well, it's a typical June after all in my garden. After months of snow and horrid cold, it got warmer and warmer and all of a sudden my garden is lush and green and loaded with colour. Yay!!
My peonies are blooming and look stunning.
The pale pink shrub rose is in full bloom
The dainty deep purple Siberian Iris has appeared in numerous places around the yard
I have several lovely yellow bearded iris that have fought off borer year after year
Ladies Mantle (Alchemilla mollis) is fresh with wide serrated leaves and bright chartreuse flowers
Yellow loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata) popped up out of nowhere!
Gleaming screaming RED POPPIES!!
The weigela bush suffered quite a bit of die back so I pruned it back harder than usual - is that why I am being treated to such a mass of fuchsia flowers???
The Himalayan cinquefoil (Potentilla atrosnaguinea) has only two scarlet blooms but at least it hasn't died out. It's been around ever since I started this garden 27 years ago…...
