In the butterfly garden it is daisy time! Shasta, Midsummer's Night Dream, Coneflowers, and red BeeBalm make for big landing pads.
Out in the potager the first sunflowers are beginning to bloom. The pollinator garden bordering the potager is just beginning to come to life with blooming Larkspur (newly planted this year from seed), Rose Mallow, Catmint, Milkweed, Queen Ann's Lace and Joe Pye.
Just opposite in a new bed along the back of our garage/workshop, Yarrow replaces Columbine gone to seed. A container is filling out nicely. Hostas are beginning to bloom.
The woodland edge is dry. Ironically after such a wet spring, we now have very little rain. This Monkshood was rudely moved late spring and although blooming, is not at its best, but I still love the shape of its tiny hoods.
This primrose hybrid, Primula x bulleesiana, was an impulse purchase at Home Depot. It's still blooming somewhat. I love the way the blooms stack like a mini topiary.
Persicaria Firetail is just lighting up. It is spreading nicely.
Flowering Raspberry, Rubus ordoratus, is doing just that! A nice surprise considering it was newly planted this spring. Yes, you can eat the berries if you beat the birds to it.
The nice driveway is putting on a show with Clematis, 'Comtesse de Bouchard,' and stunning Cones: Ratibida Red, Purple and Rudbeckia Maxima.
Garden bloggers' bloom day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens the 15th of each month. Add your blog to the list so we can see what's blooming in your garden.
