June - The First Half -- 2018

White Lilac with Lake Michigan at the edge of the gardens.

Lots of blooms started in the garden in May as thing here near the lake began to come to life.  Now that it is June – more and more plants are showing their colors – GREAT.  These are photos taken the first half of June.

 Centaurea Montana

 The ever present visitor - always looking for the daily salad bar!

Once again, way more photos than I could possibly upload today!  Here is a sample of what is happening as we come to the middle of the month.  Hope you enjoy this time of years as much as I do!

  1. Lovely, just lovely. The Irises were gorgeous this year here in the Madison area--and it looks like yours had a good year, too. Quite a collection! I don't remember seeing a Geranium quite like that speckled one. All over the garden? Fabulous!
