June Gardens

I haven’t been spending much time in our gardens lately because this week was so hot (90s) and humid around here. I tend to hibernate when the temperatures get above 85 degrees.

Our weekend weather could give us a little relief, so I decided to take a walk through our gardens this morning.

The shasta daisy flower bed has grown like a weed in the past month. These things are almost up to my shoulders.

  • Wow! Your garden is so pretty!
    My shasta daisies should be flowering any day now.
    I love your coneflower garden.

  • Your garden is wonderful! I love all the daisies and coneflowers, beautiful colors!

    Yea for raspberries, my favorite! Enjoy!

  • Wow the flowers are beautiful. I definitely agree with you on the heat. I have been hibernating all week because it’s been in the 90s or raining over here.
    The only plus is that I don’t feel guilty for sewing for hours. 🙂

  • Your garden is so pretty – I love daisies – they are so fresh and pretty!

  • Looking at your flowers makes me miss my home in the north. I had to learn how to plant all over again here in the southwest. Raspberries are my favorite berry, yummy. I may have to find a variety that grows here. Thanks for sharing your garden with us.

  • Too many talents for one woman!!!!! I love all your flowers!!!

  • Looks great! I planted two raspberry bushes as well, but I don’t have a thing yet!

  • Your gardens are gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing…they are a wonderful treat compared to the desert…and it’s going to be over 110 today…it just feels cooler looking at your yard!
