June Garden Views

The roses are moving into their second blooming cycle and the lilies are beginning to open. I just love how the gardens change from one month to the next. Hope you enjoy some of these garden views.

The Perfumed Path--couple smelly Double Delights on the right side of the path, plus Elle, the new Red Intuition, and Chrysler Imperial down at the end there (and another terrific smeller). Hiding behind the red bush on the left is an aromatic Valencia also.

Closer view of the far end of the Perfumed Path: Double Delight next to the yellow Black-eyed Susan plus Chrysler Imperial (the most blooms I've ever seen on this rather stingy-bloomer!). In the background, can you see all the lilies in bud? Can't wait for them to bloom!

Speaking of lilies, this one is new, and blooms earlier than I expected--the lovely Silk Road.

Silk Road Lilies paired with blue larkspur (almost finished blooming for the year) and a nice full Austin rose, Molineux.

Some more of that lucious blue larkspur, with yellow yarrow.

Earth Song and white garden phlox--in same bed as the blue larkspur.

Just starting to bloom, Strawberry Vanilla Hydrangea (the blooms are supposed to turn pink on the bottom and white on the top, but mine didn't do that last year--its first year. Hopefully this year . . . . See the Double Knock Out by the white car? And a narrow bed of roses next to my neighbor's garage (other side of driveway)?
Photobucket

Our Lady of Guadalupe--I'm astounded at the number of buds and blooms on the 4th year floribunda.
Photobucket

Oops--another non-rose pic, but I think this picture is really cool--it's my brand-new hosta Gypsy Rose. Would you like her to entertain you?
Photobucket

Since we are on non-roses, might as well throw in an example of the daylilies that are beginning to open.
Photobucket

Lest you think I strayed too far, how is this rose? I'd call Chrysler Imperial about as rosy as a rose can get!

Hope you enjoyed the garden views. : )

What a beautiful garden! Love the winding path! Your Double Delight is so pretty, makes me wish I picked one up when I saw them a couple of weeks ago in the next town over.

Your lilies and hosta look great too! Just planted some lily bulbs (first time doing bulbs) so I'm hoping to have so pretty blooms like you :)

WOW!! Your garden is outstanding. I am in love with your color combinations especially the blue larkspur. It accents so beautifully. Too bad it is almost over. Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden. lesley

The lilies sure look beautiful with the larkspur, it is magical! Thanks for the tour, great pics of roses and companions.

What a lovely series of pictures! I was so happy to see your Earth Song since I ordered mine a little while ago. Your lily, Silk Road, is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, although I love the other ones too. I'm a sucker for mauve and lilac colors. Your garden is very beautiful and the mix of roses and companion plants is outstanding.

I love your Chrysler Imperial, Kate!

RE: June Garden Views

Thank you, everyone, for your compliments.

I have to admit I'm never sure which combination I most prefer: iris and roses or lilies and roses. Fortunately, they bloom at different seasons, so I don't have to make a choice. There should be lots more lily pics coming up in the next weeks.

Of course, my favorite combination is the roses and blue larkspur. I let them re-seed themselves to their heart's content!

Beautiful! The color combinations are so perfect- especially the larkspur, lily, and yellow rose. Then that last photo is the kicker! What a pretty combination- that rose's foliage looks so good with the flower and the gray foliage behind.
Thanks!

Your garden is amazing! I think the lilies add a nice "pop". PERFECT placement I think! Your roses are just lovely! And I like the flagstone pathway. :)

Very nice Kate! I'm for that same kind of look when mine matures in a few years :)
