June 17th at the farm- Walating
Put on your walking shoes and grab a cup of something warm. It's chilly out there today!
Red aquilegia were a gift and I'm happy they have survived!
Allium Bulgaricum are subtle things, but closeup, I am very fond of them.
Deutzia is starting to bloom. I don't know the variety, but it is very small although I've had it for years.
My new variegated echinops is gradually developing its blue flowers.
The front garden is filled with lupines, clematis recta, columbine and berberis. The allium are passÃ©.
In the flats it is dark but these goat's beard blooms brighten things up.
This is my persicaria polymorpha with Sanguisorba in front of it:
Lots of iris are blooming. This one is called Pink Haze.
By the pond these yellow ones grow wild:
In an island bed, Silverado, a really gorgeous one!
There are white Siberian iris too:
A late Prestonian Lilac has only a few blooms this year. :(
But the peonies are doing well, at least before the rain comes!
There are only a few rugosa roses by the bridge. I think they have some disease. I may remove them altogether and plant more clematis there. ;)
By the bridge, Thalictrum in the island garden.
Things white. (I can't resist them.)
Baptisia soon to bloom:
And finally, the yellow and blue garden with some yellow lupines and blue baptisia.
