It’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day again! I was too busy in May to post (the lilacs!), and we had very few blooms before that since last September. So June it is!
The azaleas and rhododendrons were here before us, except the pink ‘Olga Mezitt’ rhododendron bottom right. (Third photo also shows Centaurea montana, perennial bachelor’s button.)
The hostas got big fast, and the Rodgersias are in full bloom now — with a heavenly scent.
SIDE YARD and Veggie Garden
The overall shot was from 4 June and things have grown a lot since then. In all, there’s garlic, peas, nine romaine lettuces, kale, a few cherry tomatoes, two squash and two cucumber plants, arugula, spinach, parsley, basil, and thyme.
The rest of the sideyard.
I’m working on this area quite a bit, clearing out under the weeping ‘Red Jade’ crabapple tree (and pruning it, too).
This is the best the ninebark has ever bloomed in six years. And I’m psyched it’s the angelica’s second year (biennial) so we’re getting the gorgeous flowers.
ROCK WALL & LAWN
There are two peach trees in here. More on those in following months.
