June Flower Garden
My daughter, Rachel, kept the flowers alive by making sure to water them for me.
|The clematis are planted on both sides of the garage.|
This planter, a garage sale find, is filled with creamy yellow petunias,
blue ageratum, white alyssum and purple ageratum.
The window planter is filled with pale yellow petunias, dusty miller, white
alyssum, blue lobelia, purple osteospurmum and pink nicotiana.
These daisies are planted on the south side of our house.
The variety is Becky, which I planted because of their
sturdy stems. They're great for cutting for bouquets and
The lavender is also on the south side of the house. I don't remember the
variety, but it is very sturdy.
Unlike the variety below, which tends to flop.
It is a more vivid color which kind of makes up for its floppiness.

I love the look and the sweet honey fragrance of alyssum so I
planted a variety of colors this year.
I had two elephant ears bulbs that I kept from last years garden. Only one
survived and it's looking pretty good right now!
