As I walk the garden the 'Rosy Glow' Barberry at their peak with lovely tips of pink on burgundy stems. The 'May Night' Salvia and Nepeta 'Walker's Low' are also at their peak bloom. In the very front of the garden is my brand new miniature butterfly bush 'Lo and Behold'. It should be starting its bloom soon and I wait with much anticipation!
One of my newest favorite additions to the garden this year are the Double Pink and Double Red Knock Out roses you see here.
The color of these roses against the purple-blue of the nepeta is so breathtaking that I just can't stop looking at them. I love this new addition and will enjoy the blooms throughout the entire summer.
Next are the Rhododendrons and Azaleas. They too have just completed their showing and serve as backdrop in the garden behind Boxwood, Weeping Norway and Astilbe.
The blooms were exceptionally vibrant this year and I was glad to take a moment to admire and appreciate their beauty.
The daylily and spirea are also in full bloom proudly displaying their lovely foliage and bright flowers.
Out of all the months of the year in the northeast the month of June is certainly the most magnificent. Each day another bloom emerges from its bud and brings forth even more joy to the garden. I have been a gardener for a long time but thanks to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day I have looked forward to each month of the year like never before to see what new and exciting blooms are in store.
Visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens for more June photos from inspiring gardeners around the world and join all of us in celebrating our true passion and love of gardening. Happy GGBD and Happy Gardening!
