Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, June 2010

On the whole my garden sits waiting through the spring into June when it starts to take off. Here's a few quick shots of what's flowering for me on this Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.

Of note as well are the Iris & Ivory Silk Lilac which both managed to start and finish flowering between the May Bloom Day and today. Honestly the Lilac can't finish fast enough. The entire front garden is covered in a disgusting mulch of brown finished flowers, mimicking the same colour in the tree. It's much too large to try and deadhead so it will stay looking terrible for a little while longer. By the time it finishes flowering as well the strong fragrance becomes a little too strong and a little too much.

Calamint (Calamintha grandiflora) - The larger pink one is almost finished, the dwarf white one will soon start and go until a hard frost.

Hosta 'Tiny Tears'
Hosta 'Tiny Tears' is a very cute dwarf hosta I've recently bought.

White Serbian Bellflower
Siberian Bellflower (Campanula poscharskyana) needs to get cut back hard and divided once it stops flowering, that won't be for a while though.

Dahlia 'Louisiania'
Dahlia 'Louisiania' is really starting to pick up. Maybe I will try keeping this one over the winter.

NOID Red Carpet Rose
My NOID Red Rose will be stunning this year. Each stem has 25-30 buds on it. I'll replace this picture with one of it open in a little bit.

Tomato 'Tumbler'
The 'Tumbler' Tomato - brought home an unhappy looking plant from work. May or may not make it but it's covered with unripe fruit. I imagine all it needs is a good amount of fertilizer and it should be fine.

And that's just a quick sampling of everything I have flowering outside this Bloom Day.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Gorgeous color on your dahlia! You should definitely bring it inside over winter.

  2. Lovely blooms. Good luck with the tomatoe.

  3. I love your dahlia. I tried them one year and decided that I'd just enjoy other people's dahlias.

  4. The flowers of the dwarf hosta are so cute, I know the whole plant is adorable:)
