Can you believe it?
And, the middle of June.
The middle is when we join
and show what's blooming in our gardens.
I always feel like there's not much blooming here, until I get out and start taking photos.
Then it seems like there is plenty.
It's been heating up here...lots of sun.
Maybe not enough sun for this Purple Coneflower. It probably needs to be moved.
There's one sunny corner in the fenced yard. And, it's getting pretty crowded.
Mexican Flame Vine..Senecio confusus
In the Deck Bed, the Knockout Roses are blooming again...finally.
The striped leaf canna has some buds. They're heavy & almost broke off.
Hope they hold up. This one's a beauty.
Up on the deck, more sun. These narrow leaf zinnias are beginning to take off.
And, the Purslane likes the sun.
Along the back of the fenced yard, one corner gets a little sun.
Enough to let the Thryallis have some blooms.
We planted some Turk's Cap here, too. It can take the shade.
Both of these are supposed to be 'deer resistant'. Deer always ate the Turk's Cap blooms,
and I don't trust putting the Thryallis to the test.
In what I call the Air Conditioner Bed...the Fireworks Gomphrena is doing well.
There's a bit of midday sun in this bed.
And, the daylilies are liking it.
Over on the other side of the house, in the Rock Bed, this old fashioned
'Ham & Eggs' lantana, is finally beginning to look good.
It was moved down here, from our old garden. This is the FOURTH spot for it.
Last year it struggled, just to stay alive. But, this years it's blooming.
This is the kind you see growing on the roadside in some places in Texas.
So far, the deer are leaving it alone.
In the Veggie Garden, the 'volunteer' Zinnias have been blooming a while.
I let them stay. The bees and butterflies and even the hummers like them....
luring them in to pollinate the veggies.
They also make nice little bouquets.
So, what is blooming in your garden?
Head over to Carol's and see some pretty June blooms.
