I Love June in the Garden

June and July are my favorite months in my yard.  Just about everything is blooming and the hot, hot days of August haven't yet taken their toll on the flowers. 

 This is the beginning of the third summer for the plants around and in the pond to grow.  Everything is filling in nicely.  The daisies on the right are enormous!!



















The lavender and some daylilies are blooming. The daisies and coneflowers are about to explode with blooms. I can't wait!







Several families have taken up residence this year. Some of the places look awfully full of nesting material!  I absolutely love that the birds use the birdhouses!










Thanks for coming by.  I hope everything is blooming in your yards now too!

  13. Great pictures. I think everyone around the country is benefiting from the mild winter we had. We planted early and have been able to enjoy our flowers longer then usual this year. We were also able to get an earlier start on renovations and home improvements that were badly needed. You have a beautiful garden and I hope you enjoy the fruits of your labor this year.

  26. A lot of thanks to Pam! I love gardening. Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity. Cheers, @Samantha
