June Garden Happenings

I can't believe we're nearing the end of June already ~ gosh that went fast! I hope you've been spending lots of time outside relaxing, playing and watching your garden grow. Here's is a little tour of what's been happening in my garden this month ...
 
 
After the explosion of color in the May garden, we settled into a much calmer scene in the month of June. One by one, the perennials began to take their turn being in the spotlight.



The trick with perennials to have a mix of plants that bloom at different times. Each year they just get bigger and better. Many of them don't last long, but each one is a delight.





 






The vegetables in the raised beds are really taking off and almost spilling over the edges already! If you were here for the May garden tour, you can see what a difference a month makes.


And we're getting a hint of the bounty to come.


Look at those tiny little green beans!


The peas are Megan's favorite. She'll eat them right out of the garden. I wonder what Clare's favorite will be?

 

 
Nothing says summer better than a little red, white and blue ...
 


 
and a flag on the front porch!
 

Oh the joys of summer!


Thanks for joining me in the garden today!

See you on Tuesday for our July Garden Party!

What a gorgeous yard you have Sharon. I'm envious of your vegetable garden. My container gardens are going dormant this season as I prepare for our move. It was so nice to stop by and see all your beauty. Now back to packing!
Blessings,
Patti

You have such beautiful blooms in your garden. The peony looks like hybrid peony 'Bartzella'. I just got one for my garden and love it. I enjoyed the visit!
