Now Blooming June 15th


The "main attraction," starring right now, is this combination in one of my "strips." The stars are the May Night Salvia and Pink Poppy. Co-starring Snow in Summer and Corsican Violas. Also appearing: Penstemon Elfin Pink and Wisely Pink Sun Rose. The red is a young annual Salvia and a small Poppy.
















Here are my top "Favorites" in bloom now. Roses are just beginning their first flush. I still have some white Bleeding Hearts and a couple periwinkle blue Iris. Blue Flax is also still blooming brightly every morning and many of my Penstemons are beginning to awaken. Husker Red looks like it will be particularly beautiful this year. Salvia Rose Queen is also beginning to look nice. And.... FINALLY I was able to have the first salad from my lettuce. What a treat! Even had a couple leaves of spinach. Cilantro doing well. So is Rosemary which, I'm proud to say, I was able to keep over winter.

How wonderful everything looks!

My 'Husker Red' bloomed at the beginning of June and it was a very good year for it, even though I had transplanted it in the spring.

Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Bev, the pictures of your flowers are beautiful. I love that pink rose. I can see how your stress melts away when you go into the garden, it's lovely.

Talk about having an eye, Bev, you certainly have one for gorgeous combinations! That's one of the prettiest beds I've seen. I love the pink poppy next to the May Night Salvia, and the addition of the Elfin Pink penstemon popping up here and there is a great accent. The snow in summer makes it all just glow, doesn't it? Love it!

Oh, and I forgot to say how impressed I was that you overwintered Rosemary! In Colorado. That's impressive.
