Summertime and the Living is Easy

Bloom Day - June 15, 2012

DSC_0017It seems as though everything in the garden is in bloom in June. It is not true, of course, but there is an abundance of bloom. The sky is bright and the shadows are deep today making photography a challenge. DSC_0018The long border has waning foxgloves, peachleaf bellflower, the bright blooms of impatiens and the textures and different shades of foliage. Knock out rose and delphiniumThe deep rede knock out roses are in bloom beside a clear blue delphinium.  New Dawn is blooming in abundance, rolling over the fence by the gate. New DawnIt has a light but clear fragrance. DSC_0015The astilbes are starting to bloom. It seems quite early for them as it is not yet summer. I must check last year's photos to see when they bloomed in 2011...it was the end of June so we are two weeks early this year. Clematis 'Roguchi'In June, small flowers can be overlooked but Clematis 'Roguchi' is a lovely climber and stands out with  significant purple/blue bells which are much different from the large flowered clematis such as Niobe DSC_0006and this lovely pink whose name escapes me. DSC_0016The long sunny border has much in bloom. I am loving the containers in the front of the greenhouse this season. Niobe with containers.They contain hot colors and are filling out quite nicely. I really must do a container post. They are such fun. Many thanks for yet another Bloom Day hosted by Carol of May Dreams. I hope to visit many Bloom Day gardens this June.
