Pink foxglove, Digitalis purpurea, which is a biennial

Looking back to the Fence Garden... and our enormous tree slide :)

Cherry Corner Garden with Sedum 'Acre' and the catmint (Nepeta 'Walker's Low') continuing on the Front Walk.
Canna 'King Humbert' with red edges in the Front Walk garden. Also the seedheads of Allium 'Purple Sensation'.
Allium christophii in the Front Walk with Spirea 'Goldflame' just coming into bloom.
At the back of the house, lots is going on around the driveway this week. Our old rose and Clematis 'Etoile Violette' is in bloom! (see more about the Driveway Garden)
Clematis 'Etoile Violette', lightly scented pink rose and Lamium maculatum.
My favorite grass at the moment, Miscanthus sinensis 'Dixieland' is a dwarf sized for smaller garden.
View from the back yard to the Driveway Garden. This part is quite the jungle at the moment! Geranium 'Orion, lavender, Sedum, Iris siberica, Lilies, Clematis and a couple lilacs are all fighting it our for survival. Another pink rose blooms across the driveway.

Pretty pink peony does pretty well between the mature lilacs.

Happy Bloom Day!

Wonderful weekend to you!


  1. Absolutely lovely! Your garden is looking wonderful. I particularly loved all the Clematis!

  2. So beautiful! Amazing tumble of soft colors - a wide range of colors but they all blend together harmoniously. I see that you still have a strip of lawn in some places - how long will that last? :-)

  3. What an amazing variety of plants you have flowering at the moment, it really does all look wonderful. Your little foxgloves are getting better and better and all your clematis and roses make such a pretty combination.

  4. Wow, you certainly have blooms in June! Your clematis, especially the one climbing the maple, knocks my socks off! I have some of the yellow foxglove also, but it does much better for you.

  5. Julie, you have an impressive collection of Clematis, all combined beautifully with other things. Many things in your garden are a month behind mine yet clematis would be flowering here now if I had any. Christina

  6. Your blooms are bursting out all over especially the many lovely ones.

  7. Severe Clematis envy going on here! What a great selection you have. Your June garden is wonderful.

  8. Thanks Julie for the beautiful flower show. You are a very good gardener. We are cloudy today and not much is in bloom right now. Sheila Stephens

  9. Thanks all! I was outside all day today helping put in two new gardens that I designed for a family in our town! :) Very excited to show you all plans and the finished gardens!

  10. Julie, your clematises are awesome! I love most 'Fairydust', is lovely.
    Have a nice weekend!

  11. Beautiful Clematises. Your garden will be very fragrant with the Philadelphus and honeysuckle flowering.
    Wish you a happy new gardening week!

  12. I enjoyed looking through the photos of the pinks and purples in the June garden. Lovely!
