June Garden Blogger's Bloom Day

Just a few blooms for you today, here's the new (to me?) petunia 'Sophistica'

Big Daddy Blue Petunias.

Some reseeded violas under Purple Palace.

Gentian Speedwell 'Barbara Sherwood' in the shade.

My favorite hidden lilac looks and smells wonderful, the pink buds and white blooms are a lovely combo. I assume it's 'Beauty of Moscow', or something similar.

Polemonium is blooming well, love the blue flowers.

In the miniatures garden, Linum perenne has opened the first bloom.

Mouse Ears Baby's Breath, so cute.

And the new English Daisy is still blooming well.

And I will close today with a few more tulips.

The garden is in a bit of a lull at the moment, hope to have a wave of new blooms soon. I am worried about my Supersition Iris, although the foliage looks great there is absolutely no sign of a flower stalk...

June 1st Blooms

June 1st, and there is plenty of colour around the yard. I bought a few dwarf arctic irises yesterday, here's one with a globeflower.

The tulip bed is filling in nicely...

The Gnome Door is installed for the season.

The blooms of Brunnera Jack Frost & Dicentra spectabilis are lovely together.

Remember the yard bunny who moved in last summer? He's still living here, we've come to a comfortable agreement.

The Red Tulips are a nice contrast with the white frog.

Here's a suprise tulip, coming up through a globe cedar.

Flaming Spring Green Tulips are a little late, but so pretty.

I'm really enjoying the Emerald Blue Moss Phlox - so many blooms!

Here are the 5 new Heuchera, all tucked into their new bed.

And the Snowdrop Anemones are in full bloom.

Hope you enjoyed the tour! :)
