June Gloom Busy
Gomphrenea 'Fireworks' above
June Gloom has returned, though we know it will soon be gone. So garden activity is frantic. So blogging is neglected. A few flowers for Friday.
April brings the first magnificent flush of roses. Then they are done, but in May Hemerocallis takes up the banner of Spring. Then in June the roses rebloom, along with a continuing show from the Hemerocallis. The Shasta daisies and other plants are blooming, too. With June Gloom strong, so are colors, though photography yields flatness in the deliciously heavy overcast.
'Firefighter' is not only fragrant, it's prolific. That's Dahlia 'Arabian Night' near the bottom of the photo, and Iochroma 'Purple Queen' near the top.
Unknown rose with pink Pentas and Fuchsia
'Love and Wishes' with Hemerocallis 'Gold District' in the background.
Now back to work in the cool overcast. Have a great weekend! I hope you are able to get out and garden.
