June, that is. Forgive the corny intro, but that tune has been rattling around in my head. I’m especially fond of the part where “the young Virginia creepers are a-huggin’ the bejeepers out of every morning glory on the fence”. I wait all year for the Eremurus ‘Cleopatra’ (above) to put in an appearance. They will be followed by the slightly less dramatic Sheffield’s.
I planted some Brodiaea bulbs a long time ago and forgot about them. Last year I had one flower, this year there were two…nice surprise.
A sweet little white Armeria managed to stake out some territory amidst the marauding foxgloves and Ajuga.
Carpenteria californica ‘Elizabeth’…heavenly scent
Fuchsia ‘Golden Gate’
NOID orange Geum: passalong plants are like that. I think I’ll just call this one ‘Hilda’.
Purchased for foliage color and late season berries, the little orange flowers on
One of my all-time favorites: Phlomus russeliana is in full flowering mode.
And that’s my flower show for mid-June. I’m late in posting, but it is never too late to check in with Carol to see what others are seeing on Bloom Day.
