It’s Mosaic Monday June 11 and I am sad to see that my irises are on their last blooms and my peonies are almost done. This year has been wonderful for both my irises and peonies, and they have really put on a show. But next come the summer blooms of daylilies and roses in my garden. Here are some of the flowers blooming in the meantime.
The day has been so busy that I almost forgot to take photos of what I do have blooming in my garden. Almost dusk, I got these shots of my garden. I found that there are convenient grouping of flowers by color, so here they are.
My.dark foliage plants. First is my dark elderberry which is almost in full bloom. This is it’s nicest year so far. Next is My purple foliage dahlia (bloom will be magenta). I love my dark begonia, whose flowers will be dark pink. The lamium is silver with a dark edge and dark pink flowers.
My.reds and vivid pink flowers are on one of my favorite clematises, the red valerian, salvage foxglove, and astrantia.
In the yellow range are the grasses in my volcano strip; the yellow Stella D’Oro daylily, yellow wallflower and yellow and green foliage on the eonymous; the greens and yellows of my front garden with the now faded flower heads of the purple alliums; and the green tomato plants that are doing really well in containers.
My roses are starting to bloom as are the Daylilies. Maybe next Mosaic Monday I will have those to share as well. For now, I’m sharing with Dear Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. And also with Blooming Tuesday.
Oooh! I found even more Garden Parties to join. I’ll be joining Tuesday Garden Party and Garden Tuesday this week.
