June Garden Bloggers Bloom Day at leavesnbloom

posted in: Gardening | 24
It doesn’t seem a month since the last Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.  Like everyone else its been busy here in the summer garden though if you were to look at the weeds in parts of my back garden you’d wonder what I had been doing over the past month.  There’s lots in bloom and here are just a few of my favourites which you can click on to enlarge.  If I  posted photos of everything the page would never load for you.
These are the different coloured candelabra primulas in the bog garden.  I gave up many years trying to grow what I wanted in this corner – the best plants to flourish down here are the bog plants.
and some of the Iris

In the rest of the garden are so many different coloured Sweet Williams (Dianthus Barbatus) and Columbines.

    Hi Rosie,

    Wonderful photos, so many flowers.

    I'm rather jealous of your black elder, I bought one last year and so far it's pretty much done nothing at all! Typical, just my luck to get the only Elder which doesn't grow! Booooo.

    Ooh, you have a lovely columbine collection. That's something I never see in our subtropical gardens. That black lace is pretty as well. My fave of the pics is that hebe, though. I've heard that name, but I've never actually seen one. Interesting plant!

    Rosie your Candelabra primroses are exquisite.The Black Elder is beautiful. I have a regular old green one , while its leaves are pretty it winter kills a lot every year and never seems to flower.

    What an eye-catching Iris! The rich yellow is gorgeous! I've discovered I'm becoming quite fond of Astrantias too. Sadly our Dicentra is done blooming for the season, but it's something to look forward to next spring.

    Gorgeous garden. I love the bog garden. My husband made one for me attached to the pond. I do not have much in it yet but I love the primulas.

    So many lovely blooms in your garden, Rosie! The candelabra primulas are new to me–I love these!

    So sorry to hear the sad news facing your family. I hope that your son and his fiancee are able to have a joyous celebration whenever that may be.

    A great GBBD post for this month. I love the way and the angle with which you framed the flowers in the pictures.

    Your first picture, of the bog garden, could have been plucked straight from a gardening magazine. How wonderfully perfect it looks! And the candelabra primulas are going on my list to research. They are lovely.

    Hello Rosie,

    I always enjoy visits to your garden. Your flowers are lovely and there are so many that I don't recognize and a few that I do.

    The idea of having a 'bog garden' is so foreign to me, living here in the dry desert. But, yous is just lovely.

    Rosie, I enjoyed looking at all these pretty blooms! But, the very first picture is the best! Very nice combination of plants and the primulas are the stars of the show!

    I really love your bog garden. I would love to have a boggy area to be able to grow some different plants. You have so many pretty flowers blooming.
    I'm hoping by next week things will be back to normal here too 🙂
