June is a month of transition in the garden. Not what you would expect. You feel it in the flower markets as well. Locally grown peonies are gone. The first flush of roses have been deadheaded. Bearded iris are a distant memory. Dahlias have yet to bloom. Focal flowers (large statement flowers in an arrangement) are missing from the garden right now. But there are some pretty little gems and unusual flora I can share.
We have had some great rainstorms throughout June. Everything looks healthy and happy. I am a happy gardener because I haven't had to start a consistent watering schedule yet. I know that will happen soon. We get hardly any rain in July and August.
Next month- dahlias!!!
Peace, love, and blooms my friends!
