June is when summer begins. It’s a month of lots of blooms, heat, bugs, air conditioning, and lots of outdoor cooking and eating.
The eveing primrose are in full bloom.
The Egyptian Walking Onions are producing all sorts of little bulblets. Fascinating to watch grow.
Feverfew, not to be confused with chamomile, is blooming in the garden. Such a wonderful scent when you rub the leaves.
The north facing front shaded garden is full of hosta, ferns, and Dames rocket.
The bridge garden, started last year, reclaims a bit of land that just has brush on it. It is mostly shady so there are lots of hostas, soloman seal, and columbine. On this side of the bridge are two large clumps of daylilies one orange and one yellow. That’s where you can find the frog parking lot too!
I’ve been really pleased with the rose blooms under the trellis this year. I’ve been spraying them with Neem oil to keep away those pesky little caterpillars that eat all the leaves. So far I’ve been lucky in controlling them.
The sign post garden is full of hosta and some evening primrose.
The back shady tree garden is a favourite of mine and it was started a couple of years ago. The ferns, hosta, trillium, columbine and bleeding hearts grow really well. This year a tall mullein grew just outside of the log edging the garden. Of course I had to let it grow.
The honeysuckle garden now is home to all my painted rock houses. It is also my tea thyme area where there are lots of danglers, wind chimes and tea cups hanging from the tree.
I’m sharing these views of the garden with Through my Garden Gate.
