My garden in June is when the spring blooms have faded and the Iris and Lilacs take center stage.
A far away shot of my favorite lilac "Little Princess". It is suppose to be a small lilac bush, only 4 feet tall but mine grew a lot bigger than that. So much for "Little", more like a "Big, Majestic Queen!"
Here is a close up of one of it's blooms. It has the most fragrant blooms I have ever smelled. When this lilac is in full bloom, you can smell it the second you step into the yard, and from very far away too!
Lambs Ear and Sedum
Light Violet Iris
You can see the river below my property from here, so what a perfect spot for a bench!
Yellow Iris with purple Dames Rocket behind it.
I planted morning glory seeds in the pot in the foreground. We will see how well it grows up the trellis.

My hosta garden, and where I need to dig up and divide some of these hostas and move to my new shade garden.

Breath, not in bloom, on the right.

The peonies bloomed in June and I took lots of pictures of all the different varieties and then I accidentally deleted some of them. 😢 Here is a gorgeous pink peony that I did not delete.
Sun garden in front of garden shed.
I have one sunny spot in my new shade garden and this is it. This is also the view from my sun room window.
A painted fern. Isn't it gorgeous? I need to buy more of these. They are non-invasive and never outgrow their space. They stay small; perfect for a smaller shade garden.
Purple Bearded Iris
Pink Marguerite Daisy.

A far away shot of the back side of my home and my retaining wall garden. My husband was working on the roof when the picture was taken, hence the ladder on the roof.
Viburnum, or Snow Ball Bush.
Now it's the end of June and most of the spring blooms are gone and the garden is just a lush, beautiful green. It won't be long though till the garden is alive in color once again as I'm seeing lots of buds out there! And hopefully, I won't delete the pictures after I've taken them this time! 🤣
Have a Great Day! Amy
