On this June Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day the rose have burst into bloom. It has been a cold and wet spring, but our last couple of days have been in the 90s. The weather gods show just how unpredictable they can be. For me, this spring is is the first really floriferous June we have had. All the roses but one are new plants and they are really showing off.
This peach Drift rose blooms right next to Paprika. Both of them are low growing landscape roses and require very little care.
Kordes started hybridizing disease resistant roses over 30 years ago. No herbicides needed. This is another low growing rose.
I had a Folksinger rose up in Heath, but it never looked this good.
This is an elegant icy white rose. I love all the Kordes roses.
Knockout Red supplies the red red rose, that’s newly sprung in June.
By the time you are looking at all these roses I am sure that Fantin-Latour,and Lion’s Fairy Tale will also be in full bloom. I think I have to wait a little longer for The Fairy and Purington Pink to bloom. But of course, there are other bloomers in June.
I’m adding this closeup because the rose is so lovely – and just now in full bloom.
This delphinium has already lost one blooming stem in a storm, but it looked very pretty on our dinner table.
It is amazing that the Japanese primroses are still showing bloom – but it has been very wet.
I have three lovely clumps of white Siberians. And friends waiting for a piece of this dependable beauty.
I have three big clumps of blue Siberians, but these are coming up in a clump of weeds in the North Border. They will not give up. Of course, this is another very wet spot.
Thank you Carol for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Visit May Dreams Gardens and see what else is blooming over our great land.

Your blooms are lovely. The roses are on parade. Your area is wet, my area is dry. At midnight tonight we had a thunder storm move through with the first rain of June. Happy GBBD.
I always enjoy seeing your roses. Thanks for sharing.
Some interesting Roses many that I am not familiar with. Are you sure that it is Rosa Alchemyst. I have had it in our garden for over 25 years and not sure it is the same. see the end of https://glebehouse.wordpress.com/2017/06/01/end-of-the-month-view-may-2017/?wref=tp where I have my Alchemyst for comparison.
Beautiful! Love the Folksinger Rose!
Happy Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day!
So pretty! Why would you ever want to go inside?
hairytoe – With all the crazy weather we’ve been having – flood followed by blistering heat – I am kept indoors altogether too much.
Lea – I’m so glad Folksinger likes Greenfield and it wasn’t me she disliked in Heath.Happy Bloom Day to you.
Steve – Thank you so much for visiting and for sending me the link to your post that included a beautiful closeup of Alchemyst. Now that mine is fully open I can guarantee that it is Alchemyst. I do not guarantee that it will grow so lushly her in NEW England. We do not have the temperate climate you do, but I think she will make a substantial shrub (this is only her second year in the garden) even if she refuses to show any climbing tendencies.
Denise – I love sharing the roses!
Lisa – I am going to visit a rose trial garden tomorrow morning and I am praying that we do not have rain, but I’ve been told to bring my slicker.
I loved your roses. If only I could have sniffed them. I only have one and it came with the house.
Thank you for sharing.
Jeannie – Some of them do have some fragrance – but nothing to compare to the fragrance of my lilac tree – a real tree, syringa – which perfumes the air all around my house. People find it very mysterious.

June is certainly bustin’ out all over your garden! Gorgeous blooms!
hi Pat, sometimes climbers can take a long time to start climbing. We have an iceberg rose which has just started after about five years!
Steve – I would love it if my Alchemyst took off after a couple of years. I’ll hold the thought.
You have some beautiful roses! Andrea at The Creative Coastal Home
