A Stroll In My June Garden!

What would summer be without taking early morning and late evening strolls in beautiful flower gardens?  I just cannot imagine this season without the sight and smell of these beautiful blooms!  
Every year I add more perennials that usually take a good 3 years to expand and fill their spot in the garden.  And this year was the year for a great show of daylilies, roses, hostas, and sedum.  Here’s just a few shots of how things are looking up outside of the kitchen:
Pink daylillies in front of hostas.
A close up shot of a buttery yellow daylilly.

“Blue Mammoth” is huge among other variegated hostas.

I love how the morning sun at dusk shines through delicate flower petals.

More daylillies!
The gardenias have been blooming since May!
“Knock Out” red roses just pop with vivid crimson color against the texture of the stone wall and walkway and the velvet-like green lawn (thanks to all of the rain that we received this year).  These rose bushes are only one year old, highly prolific, as well as being bug and disease-resistant too!
Another brilliant pink daylilly!

A patch of pink and chartreuse Sedum in front of a lime-colored “Sum and Substance” hosta, soon to be another huge plant, it’s only 2 years old.

 Lastly a shot of a large bed of hostas, daylillies, and roses.  I just love water elements in gardens and this tall water fountain is perfect with a lovely, trickling sound out in the quiet of the countryside.  The azaleas are in their green stage, having already bloomed back in April.  We’ve already planted a new group of smaller hostas that will fill in the empty spaces after a few years of growth.  If there is one thing that gardens teach us, it’s patience!

Thanks for going on this little garden stroll with me today!
Your comments make me smile and I promise to get back to you. I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen or hummingbirds in my gardens.
