June is busting out all over here in the garden! Roses everywhere, more and more greenery and buds popping out.
The scentimental bush keeps blooming.
It’s so nice when we pull into the driveway on bikes and the scent of roses is in the air.
The knockout bush also has a ton of blooms now. No scent on this one, just lots of color.
This garden is really feeling more mature and established now. It’s funny how I want to put a plant somewhere, but then the garden tells me in no uncertain terms whether it likes that or not 😀 . It has sort of shaped itself over the past few years.
The star of the garden this week? My astilbe!
These are Deutschland and are about 2 feet tall. This year I put some more behind the white in staggered height (although obviously not to size yet.) Right behind the white is the astilbe flame. Tiny, but blooming:
Then behind that is a row of astilbe Bressingham Beauty:
These will be over 3 feet high. I can’t wait to see all these 3 at full size!
The side tippy pots look good. These petunias are not wave petunias, but regular ones. (Check out the lily stalks in the background! Those will be popping soon.)
These are called red picotee:
To be honest, I am not the biggest fan of the petunia, but decided to get some this year and I am glad I did.
Then there are these pink flowers which I have to look up the name again. I grew these from seed a couple years ago and then I just let them come up wherever they want. They reseed like crazy.
This is a section of the garden that I have trouble growing things in and they seem to do well. I kind of have a pink thing going here.
Lots of sun drops now.
It’s full steam ahead with blooms now! I’ve got lilies (several kinds), liatris, cone flowers galore – all getting ready to put on a show!
