Happy Bloom Day! The fifteenth seems to come so quickly every month. I enjoy writing these bloom day posts because they help me to focus and appreciate my garden. I also enjoy them because I always take a wonderful trip around the world to see what’s blooming in everyone else’s garden! Grab a cup of coffee or tea and visit May Dreams Gardens to see what other gardeners have posted. It’s really a nice treat and you deserve it!
We’ve had so so so much rain here that I went out to the garden wondering if there would be anything at all to share today. I was happy to find that the usual June blooms are there, if not a bit weather worn and soggy.
Somehow the iris have made it through the rain…
This is a bit of a mystery rose. I didn’t plant it but it’s quite happy hiding among the iris and it seems to be getting more prolific every year. I don’t think it’s a weed, and it’s not too aggressive so I’m just kind of enjoying it. Here’s what happens to rhubarb blossoms when I host large family events that require almost all of my time and attention. Comfrey…White iris, still hanging on too. I honestly don’t know how.
Sage… Salvia… Sweet Pea… Rose Campion… White Cottage Rose Heather… Dianthus (weather worn dianthus, actually)… and Rosa Ragosa, one of my favorites…
What’s blooming in your garden?
Wonderful! I live vicariously through these pictures of you gargen. I wish I had more sunlight on my small patio. I haven’t had much time this month to be in my garden, much less take pictures. My climbing roses are blooming like crazy this year, but they are not the color I planted three years ago??? Last year there were a few yellow blooms, but this year there is a cascade of red roses! very strange.
that is strange? I’ll have to try to figure it out… I hope your enjoying the red roses, lol. I remember the photos of your patio, it looked like great space!
I like your mystery rose.
me too, there may be a bit more to come about it in a day or so..
Not a “new” bloom but this butterfly was quickly visiting every impatiens flower. I took 6 pictures and only got this one. He stayed around for 20 minutes. Nick spotted him and got the first picture…so cute- 17 and he still is like a little kid with butterflies…
Loved both your blogs!
thanks sweetie! and they never outgrow the butterflies 😉
Lovely blooms. I’m particularly fond of the sage. Happy GBBD!
