End of June in the Garden

July 1st, 2019

This has been a long spring, it seems to drag on and on, in fact last week we had nightime lows in the low 40’s. As a result, everything has been slow to arrive in the garden as well. The flowers are just starting to show their faces, it seems like July will be full since June and July will be compressed into one month.

These are a few of the things blooming in the garden right now.

What’s blooming in your garden?

    Lots blooming here…the Northwest spring/summer comes a lot earlier than the Northeast. What is that purple flowering shrub in the last photo? Very pretty! Our peonies were done a few weeks ago…

      That’s a native wisteria. I keep it in a container and am training it as a standard, though currently I’m trying to propagate it so it has two extre vines going into the soil.
