Happy Garden Blogger's Bloom Day!
I'm always a little giddy when the 15th of the month rolls around. :)
All of the June roses are shining in their glory. This blaze rose makes me gasp a happy little gasp every time I see it snuggled up these stunning strawberry foxgloves.
The common blue bachelor's buttons are bursting out all over the garden. I used to see these alongside the road and we always called them cornflowers. The blue is the prettiest, I think, but I have pink ones too.
I dare any bachelor to have prettier buttons!
The orange lilies have a love-hate relationship with me. The color is a bit garish for the calm, serene garden mood I'm going after. They are so exotically beautiful when they bloom though, that I can't bear to pull them out.
Maybe I'll plant a soap opera garden someday - The Bold & The Beautiful - and they can be transplanted there.
Isn't this the sweetest tiny delphinium? She's only about a foot high - and full of the bluey blues that I love so much. I almost missed this one; she was hiding under the butterfly bush.
