June Bloom Day

It was a lovely sun shiny day. I got to stay home and move slowly. Doing. There was a nice nap. Before it was all over I went for a Bloom Day walk about. There is a lot going on and June is the bloom lull high on the low spot in the wild cultivated gardens.

Rose Campion

The native Smooth Hydrangea

A few of them want to be lacecaps.

In a wall of hydrangea I did not plant.

All kinds of small grasses are blooming.

Spirea japonica, a bit of a self sowing pest.

The last of the Black Gamecock

A Filipendula

The Carrion Flower goes to seed

Thermopsis caroliniana

Queen Anne's Lace with bugs

Ox-Eye Daisy


A lily that fell out of the ground and followed me home many years ago blooms for the very first time.

The Meidiland rose

The first of thousands

I spent most of my day doing in the roadside vegetable garden.

One full month past the average annual last frost date and the garden is finally fully seeded and planted. I planted the fall vegetable garden early.

My vegetable growing season is so short up here that is pretty much all I get anyway. Things are looking good. There will be some fine produce.

The vegetable garden is surrounded by wild.

And the leftover parsnips are allowed to bloom.

Spigelia marilandica

A white iris on the Great lawn

Common Milkweed just waiting for caterpillars.

The Lush out by the roadside

With asters I expected to be taller and bloom in the fall. Hopefully they will get their act together once they settle in.

It was a most relaxing Bloom Day. Miss Carol at May Dreams Gardens will have more.

There will be plenty more in the Lush of the wild cultivated gardens. The time of vegetation is just getting started.

A great selection of blooms!
A friend recently gave me some blue asters. Right now they are still in a bucket of water - got to get them set out soon.
Have a wonderful day!

Yes, there is aplenty of blooms out there on that mountain side. Your veggie garden looks good too. Happy GBBD. Is your Rose Campion in full sun? I want to grow that but I don't have a full sun spot.

The asters are a big group of plants that are in the white, blue, purple color range. There are a great many to choose from.

Lisa my Rose Campion get strong half day sun. They are a self sowing weak perennial that wander about and seem to favor disturbed more open ground. They had a good run here for about four years and seem to be fading out as the garden gets more settled with permanent residents.

What wonderful variety in your garden this year! It's great to see a flower bloom for the first time. I am very familiar with the 'that I did not plant' variety, too :)
