June Blooms…

It’s time for Outdoor Wednesday with Susan at The Southern Daydreamer. I’ve been enjoying my June blooms in the yard.

 

The lavender is blooming which makes weeding in the beds an olfactory delight!

 

Lovely splashes of crimson are welcome in the planter. This rose is so prolific and I cut it back aggressively wondering if it will bloom again…and it does.

 

Last but not least my new addition this year a Sarah Bernhardt Peony which has stolen my heart. I will be planting more Peonies next year!

What’s blooming in your yard? We are so happy here in Western Washington to be enjoying some nice sunny days. We still have promises of more rain coming but we’ll enjoy the sun while it lingers and entertains us!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Lovely! If I cut my roses back now they will bloom again this year? My peony plants are done, and now the hydrangea are going strong. Roses , and the annuals. I keep pinching back the mums so they don’t bloom till fall.
    Beautiful pics, Ellen!

  2. We have twin peonies. When I lived in the Northwest, I planted three peony bushes in our new yard. We moved within two years, so I missed their glory, but I hope they are still thriving. My peonies here in Denver have had a stellar year. I wish they’d bloom all summer!

  3. I do love that last peony..no wonder it stole your heart. It is gorgeous!
    Petunias and geraniums are blooming now.
