Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day- June 15

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.IMG_1620 Here’s what happens to rhubarb blossoms when I host large family events that require almost all of my time and attention. IMG_1619 Comfrey…IMG_1616White iris, still hanging on too. I honestly don’t know how.

What’s blooming in your garden?

Enjoy everything!




  1. 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.


    1. 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!


  2. I like your mystery rose.


    1. me too, there may be a bit more to come about it in a day or so..

    Hi Michele-

    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!




    1. thanks sweetie! and they never outgrow the butterflies 😉
