What’s Blooming In My Garden In June ~ What’s blooming in my garden in June? I am so excited because it is summer now in my part of the world and after all of the heavy rains my perennial flowers are flourishing. I have quite a large flower garden that I have developed over the years filled with different types of perennials. I designed it to be just a kaleidoscope of colours with different plants blooming at different times of the summer season.
I live in an area where gardening can be a challenge because we have such a short growing season. It is not uncommon to still have some freezing temperatures in the middle of May and the beginning of September. We can also have some pretty harsh winters with some pretty chilly temperatures. But we avid gardeners still persevere with what we call ‘sprint gardening’. We get out there when we can and do what we can.
The types of plants that will grow here also limit us. Typically those identified as Zone 3 plants do very well and sometimes I will try a Zone 4 and have some success. The good thing is that we do have long days of sunshine. Around the summer solstice in June the sun was rising at 5:30 am and setting just before 10:00 pm. It is a lot of fun to be gardening late at night with the sun still shining!
Another problem I have is that with such a large flower garden at the front of the house and the back of the house I sometimes forget the names of the plants and I forget what I have planted.
This morning I went out in the garden and photographed what is blooming right now. Keep in mind that our growing season is much later so what is blooming right now in my garden is already very likely finished blooming elsewhere.
Then using the free online photo editor Pic Monkey I made labels for each of the photographs. I plan on doing this for every perennial flower that begins to bloom for the rest of the season. Unfortunately, I missed out on the earlier bloomers like the tulips and bleeding heart but I will catch it next year.
I am having a lot of fun creating a perennial directory of what grows in Thea’s garden! This is just another way of being organized! So let’s take a look at…
