Mid June in the Garden
Come and join me for another walk in the garden. I have failed on the painting end but it is that time of year when my flowers demand my attention plus I botched another video and have to redo it. The garden changes so fast and some readers have requested I keep them up to date so here we go, Mid June in the Garden (part of it anyway)
The Asiatic lilies have just begun. As many of the Iris fade so does to dominance of purple in the garden. Now come the vibrant oranges and yellows to contrast with the pink roses.
My Eden Rose has just been spectacular, it is smothering my front arbor on one side with pink tinged roses, they fade to a creamy white as they age.
I have some poppies in various colors of red and pink that are so delicate, I love how they bob and sway in the breeze.
The sweet Feverfew adds a spark of white that is a fantastic offset for all the color, the small little flowers are no bigger than a dime.
Anne Boleyn David Austin rose is a short grower so it is perfect for the front of a border.
Candyland is a tough cookie. This one has to be, it competes with lots of other plants and yet it puts on a grand display of splashed roses.
It blooms along my porch rail so when I walk past they are at eye level.
This is the view of the side border as you drive towards my house…don’t those poppies just……pop!
If you look towards the center just under the porch eave you can see my arbor with half pink half red roses on it. See how thick they are blooming? Just gorgeous.
Last today is my Pistachio Clematis. This one, like my Warsaw Nike, will bloom all summer long up until frost.
Well, maybe one more, here is one late blooming Iris that is still going strong and it is a rebloomer so come Fall I may or may not get more from it. That is the way with re-bloomers, you never know if they are really going to re-bloom for you. It is nice when they do though.
And for those hankering for more painting stuff here is a custom order sign I finished this week, it is painted on a barrel stave.
