The gardens continue to burst into bloom during June.
Herb’s Place, relocated this year for easier maintenance and picking, has already been providing fresh salad greens, including basil, lettuce, parsley, and mint. The little tomatoes are appearing so in a few weeks we’ll be enjoying the fresh picked taste of them.
Beautiful blooms, some finished and some just starting.
All the climbing plants had to be trimmed right down last year when the new siding was installed. Now the growth is noticeable on the climbing rose, the clematis and the climbing honeysuckle. One of the clematis is showing a frew blooms.
I picked some bleeding heart blooms and some fern leaves and added them to the flower press for use in a later project.
The whimsical “Free Weeds” sign needed a bit of a touch up. It was quickly done and put back up.
The bug house that got started while the grandkids were visiting last month still needs some finishing touches, but that area has been so infested with mosquitos that I’ve hesitated to go back there.
The ditch lilies are ready to burst into bloom.
The flower spikes on the yucca are getting really tall and the blooms will be opening soon.
Huge hostas in front of the shed are just starting to bloom.
A view of the back of the house showing where we love to sit and watch all the wildlife in the gardens.
