I love to walk around the house in June drinking in the scent. We just finished with heavenly-scented dame's rockets (Hesperis matronalis), and now on to the roses!
Driveway Garden... an old pink rose now blooming in combination with Clematis 'Etoile Violette'... in front is a large patch of Sedum 'Acre', which I enjoy for its quick growth and yellow flowers... and on the right is the infamous Bishop's weed or Goutweed (Aegopodium podagraria L. ) flowering with Geranium 'Orion'(close-up below).
Lavender with the just-coloring pixie Asiatic lilies by the walkway.Some climbers for the month: This young Clematis 'John Warren' is a really pretty variety that I am pleased to have blooming with Geranium 'Orion'... just before the large lilies start in the Driveway Garden.
Rose on the trellis by the driveway.
Clematis 'Lil' Nell' curling around the gate post
Clematis 'Ernest Markham' on the fence
An unnamed Clematis that is finally blooming for the first time
after a difficult climb into the mock orange shrub by the Circle Lawn.
At the end of the Shade Path garden... Clematis 'Perle de' Azur' is beginning to climb one of the silver maple tree along with a climbing hydrangea (Hydrangea anomala petiolaris).
The froth of the Front Walk... purple Allium christophii finishing up... blue catmint (Nepeta 'Walker's Low')... Spirea 'Goldflame' flowering pink.
The view down the green side of the Front Walk to the Hill Garden...
The flowering side, with pink Rosa 'The Fairy' just beginning on the hill with the silvery lamb's ears (Stachys byzantina).
Looking forward to viewing all of
the other fabulous gardens at May Dream's Gardens.
