Lots of Yellow Blooms for June

Categories: The Garden 2015.

Have you been enjoying June?  The weather has been changeable from rain, to cooler days, to gorgeous days.  Some daycations have been happening and a bit less time on the website.

The succulent containers I planted up last year are doing really well and I am especially pleased with the old tool box.  It is good to go back and compare the progress.

I planted stringy stonecrop, blue spruce sedum, hens & chicks, sedum kamtschaticum, and mossy stonecrop in here.  It seems to be thriving in the border of the trellis garden.

The oxeye daisies are blooming everywhere.  These are the wild daisies grow wherever the seeds drop.

The windmill garden is full of them right now.  Once the blooms finish I cut off all the seed heads otherwise I would be overrun with my favourite flower.

Other blooms in this garden are the yellow loosestrife, coreopsis, and allium. The orange daylilies are budding. Mr Pots and the fountain garden looks lost at the moment.  Those daisies will be gone in a couple of days!  Since taking this photo I have moved Mr. Pots to a more visible spot, still in the same garden just not hidden by the rudbeckia that seemed to have grown up all around him.

The penstemon is in full bloom along with the coral bells and Stella d’oro daylilies.  Drumstick allium, coreopsis and evening primrose are opening.  June is a wonderful time in the garden.

I have lots of yellow blooming in the garden right now.  What colour are your June blooms?
