June Bloomday

It's June Bloomday, and Father's Day as well. Hoping all you fathers have a lovely day.
This month my garden is filled with roses, pinks, and geraniums. Above is Celestial Rose from the medieval days, an alba rose which I adore.

William Morris looking lush these past few days.

Tiny De Meaux, with a helpful support by its neighboring friend, the calendula.

Marinette looking sweet as candy. Those were the pink roses.

And here are the pink pinks. ;-)

Geraniums in front of my shed.

Blythe Spirit

Mirthful, towering over more geraniums.

Moyessi, a wild rose, with the reddest flowers.

They grow alongside my shed, which seems in danger of dissapearing someday behind a jungle of plants.

Sage in the herb bed

By the back door are zaluzianskia, candytuft and a few california poppies.

Dark Lady is shy today, she hid herself behind the violas.

Your Roses look so good, I can imagine your whole garden is filled with their scent. I really like the combo of the Lady's Mantle & the Pinks. Your shed is so pretty, it would be a shame for it to be completely hidden by plants.

I've wanted Celestial for a long time. Yours is lovely. William Morris is beautiful too. Love the cup shape.

Beautiful and lush, just how I'd expect an Irish garden to be in the summertime. Thanks for sharing it with us, once again, for bloom day!

Silvia, I just love the shed photo - and even though all the roses are beautiful, the Blythe Spirit is the one I'd like to see in person.

Happy Blooming!

Such lovely blooms for GBBD you have Sylvia. I especially like the roses; your William Morris is looking good, very good in fact. Does it have a scent?
