Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day June 2011

Welcome once again to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, where garden bloggers around the world share the flowers they’re enjoying in their own gardens.

You’ll have to forgive my pictures for this month. By the time I was able to take photos, the sky was dark and overcast, so I hurried through the garden a bit quickly. You’ll also have to forgive the complete lack of identification of all blooms. I can name some of the flowers and not others, and unfortunately I don’t have enough time today to spend a couple of hours doing Google image searches to try to figure out what I’ve got growing. However, I think it’s better to post several pics of lovely unnamed blooms than to skip Bloom Day altogether.

Please enjoy!

  1. Wow! You have some serious roses growing in your garden. And I love the shot of the water plant. Mark said he saw you at the Pottery Festival.

    Hi Linda,
    There were even a few more roses, but I was unsuccessful in taking worthy photos of them. I was a little bummed about the water lily, because it was wide open the day before. It still looks pretty neat, though.

    I was helping Michael Schael at his sale, and Mark stopped by. It was nice to chat for a while.

  3. I believe that might be a hard geranium in the first photo and if that’s a honeysuckle vine I bet it smells divine!

  4. Anneliese says:

    Thanks, Darla. Hardy geranium sounds about right, and I never remembered if it was a honeysuckle or a trumpet vine. I think you’re right about it being honeysuckle.

    You definitely don’t need to apologize for these photos… they are lovely. I try to take almost all my pictures very early in the morning or when the sky is overcast… the color is so much better at those times. Larry

    Thank you, Larry! My worry was that it would be so dark that I wouldn’t be able to get the camera to focus. It was getting to be a bit late in the evening. I managed to get a few decent shots, though.

    Even without names, they are stunning…love those blue Geraniums!

  8. It’s beautiful, whether named or not. And I can imagine that it’s also filled with fragrance. Happy Blooms Day, Anneliese!

    Hi Helen! See you in Seattle!
