6 Flowers of Late June

The garden knows its schedule. It does not need a nudge to blossom. This time of year, I am thankful for the gardeners who tilled this earth before me. Their blooming legacy is a continual wonder of color and joy.

I weed and I water these perennials. The rewards are great, since they enthusiastically bloom each year. Gardening is very rewarding. The weeds win each year, still, the flowers win my heart.

  1. Gardening is very rewarding, Rebecca! I finally covered 75% of the flower beds with bark chips with plastic lining underneath so the weed has to fight it’s way out. Otherwise, I’d spend most of my time weeding! I love all your flowers.

  2. Such joy! I agree gardening is very rewarding. I hope we get good sunshine in coming weeks. I am still waiting for the buds to open since our June this year is more like November.


      1. Oh, that’s a great way to put it.. all of the southern, east coast states are almost intolerable in summer. You can chew on the air it’s so thick.
        That children’s game, ‘the floor is lava,’ it has nothing on ‘stay in the shade.’ 🤣
