Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – June 15, 2019

Roses

After long wet and cold months we may finally celebrate the arrival of official spring on Garden Bloggers Bloom Day here in Greenfield, Massachusetts. All of a sudden the budded roses burst into bloom, and before the weekend is over I think even more roses will be blooming.

Oso Easy Paprika landscape rose

Paprika is  one of the two low growing landscape roses in the garden. Peach Drift is the other. Both were eager to welcome the spring.

White siberian iris

Siberian irises are blooming here and there in the garden. They are among the water tolerant plants that we count on. Now for a walk through the garden.

Mountain laurel

Mountain Laurel beginning to bloom. May Apples and barren strawberry are no longer in  bloom

Japanese primroses

Japanese primroses are a little hard to see under the Norway spruce and behind ferns, but they love that swamp.

Goatsbeard

Goatsbeard at the back of the hugel reaches for sun, and hides a runaway Japanese primrose.

Honeysuckle

One of two honeysuckles are blooming and climbing.

I love Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day and Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for inventing this wonderful way of seeing what is in bloom across our great nation.
