Welcome to the June garden.
Caladiums grown from bulbs and an asparagus fern liven up
an old plastic planter I painted green.
Begonias were added to this planter of caladiums.
Petunias are my favorite annual.
When they get "leggy" simply cut them back and they will bloom once again.
They take our heat very well.
Bee Balm is blooming in the middle of the flower garden.
It is invasive as are many of my perennials.
Bee Balm attracts hummingbirds and butterflies so I do not mind it's spreading.
I like my perennials cosy together.
The Nikko Blue Hydrangeas that I propagated desperately need to be moved to a shady spot.
It is now too late to do that.
I will move them in the fall.
The flower garden went from part shade to full afternoon sun
with the loss of our 30 year dogwood tree in the ice storm.
Gardens are about patience, change, life, and loss.
