June in the Garden

We had two glorious gardening days this week, and now it is wet and chilly. But somehow the plants are doing what they are supposed to and the cloudy, gloomy weather is great for taking pictures.

When you can’t get out there to dig, mulch and prune, then put together a few containers. Well, I started with two…

My first was a pot of pale yellow AgastacheJune6-2013AgastacheYellowThis was followed by a container of coleus surrounded by silvery dangly foliage.June6-2013ColeusContainerPerhaps tomorrow there will be more!

I put on a jacket and did a walk about. Here is some of what is growing now.

    All just beautiful Marie!

    Lots of lovelies in your garden. I was especially drawn to the white primula. The dictamnus in my garden was hit very hard by the drought/winter. Two plants are gone and one has only 2 stalks.

    I was thrilled to see dictamnus in your garden – it is so rare! I was blessed with a white and a pink clump of ‘gas plant’ by my husband’s grandmother years ago, and they are a joy to me each spring. The kids love to hold a match to the base of the flower stalk and watch the gas flame. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Marie,

    So nice to meet you! Taking a lovely, leisurely walk through your pretty garden made me realize just how many beautiful blooms I have never seen before! Thanks for the inspiration!
