June has been a crazy roller coaster of weather for us here in the Bay Area. We had temperatures in the 90s and 100s and I think we even broke a few records with temps up to 105! Then the temperatures went back down to our pleasant 70s and 80s. Basically we were all over the place weather wise in June. Despite these fluctuations in temps the garden faired really well.
In June my lilies and daylilies were the stars of the garden. I’ve always loved lilies but this year I have new appreciation for daylilies. Daylilies were looking especially gorgeous this year with each bush pumping out a large number of blooms. Here is a look at what’s blooming in my June garden.
Lillie’s and lily bouquets
Gladiolas looking stately as ever.
This year I am also appreciating the beauty of grasses in the garden. They add such a whimsy and wild character to the landscape that is refreshing.
Hydrangeas starting to bloom
Apples ready to ripen
Fuchsias still going strong dripping with beautiful teardrop flowers.
Hope you had wonderful June.
Looking forward to an awesome July!
