I can’t remember the last time I showed you around our yard and garden, so I thought it would be fun to show you what it looks like in June.
Yes, things really are this green around here these days. (I swear, I didn’t do any adjustments in Photoshop to these pictures.)
Our rose shrubs are growing and blooming like crazy, due to all the rain we’ve had lately.
This rose shrub has more flowers on it than I’ve ever seen in all the 8 years we’ve lived in this house.
It’s producing the most beautiful cherry red roses.
Our raspberry patch is about to burst with lots of raspberries. I’m so excited! I planted a couple blackberry bushes too, so hopefully we will get a crop next year.
Our daisy patch just started to bloom. Happy to see my favorites come back each year.
Our new pale pink peonies are doing very well too. This variety smells even better than the traditional and more common hot pink peonies.
Our new butterfly garden is doing very well too. I planted black-eyed susans, which are about to bloom, coreopsis, which are blooming, foxglove, which are done blooming, Indian feathers, bee balms and more. There are lots of baby bunnies running around our neighborhood these days, so I’m happy we still have the fence around this raised bed or nothing would survive the bunnies’ ravenous appetites.
There’s always lots going on and changing in our gardens over the summer, so it’s fun to pick a few highlights to share every now and then. Thanks for stopping by!
