It’s Summertime. Summer fruits and summer flowers are here. This is the time I live for, when the wonderful summer fruits – strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, apricots and peaches are to be found. And an abundance of flowers are in my garden.
We are so excited that our strawberries are starting to produce and gave us a whole strainer full two days in a row. My blueberries have some berries on them, as do my evergreen huckleberries. Father’s Day we went to a strawberry festival and had some wonderful strawberry shortcake. This gives me some inspiration for my own strawberries. We will also be freezing some for later use.
An array of summer flowers are in my garden. Here is one of my final peonies. This pink beauty is a new one I still have in a pot.
While in another part of my front garden are my baptisia.
Two hardy geraniums I just planted – Johnson’s Blue
And Little Monster.
Several Daylilies are now blooming. Here are this vivid orange one
And a yellow one just beginning to open. Just look at all the buds waiting to bloom.
My tomatoes are getting ever bigger and have quite a few blooms, but no fruit set as yet.
My pink kalmia has started blooming now. The shrub has become rather overgrown and I will need to prune it quite a bit after it finishes blooming.
Here is a bumble bee on my white campanula.
I just purchased this Red Dragon Persicaria and haven’t even figured out where I am going to plant it yet. Yes, I’m guiltiy of lust buying, too.
This yellow foliage spirea has just begun blooming. It is also still in a pot, but at least I know where I am going to plant this one.
Well these are my offerings of what is blooming in my garden at this start to summer.
