June's Blooms

Hello everybody!  I  haven't posted in a while!  
Just so you know these pictures are all in the wrong order, starting with last picture first!  I am having lots of problems with blogger and loading my pictures.  After 3 times I decided this is going to be it!  So you can drop down to the bottom if you'd like and read up!
Here I have a Princes Spirea that is blooming and I thought it looked pretty with the sun cast on it.

A little bit of my fairy garden.

I don't know the name of this lily but I like how it looks with the cottage house.

These cement cottage fairy houses are my favorites!  This is the first year I put them on this side of the stairs but I like them here especially with the rusticness of the granite bird bath.

I planted these coleus called Redhead to create a nice contrast with Phlox Intensia Blueberry (which will spread out) and then a row of Violas.

These coleus contrast nicely against the white Annabelle Hydrangea that is just forming it flowers.
Just behind the Annabelle's is this Little Princess Spirea which always performs well.

My little Japanese Garden .  My Red Dragon Japanese Maple is really taking it's time to grow!

Another view of the left side with hostas, ferns and ground cover.

I added the stepping stones up to the pagoda last year.  The jury is still out as to whether I like them.  I decided to go with a blueish tone and I'm questioning my decision!

Just around the corner I have some Sweet Romance lavender.  It seems to be doing well next to the driveway but is being overwhelmed by a blue spruce!

Just a quick shot of my little garden girl. Not a whole lot in bloom here just yet!

I even have a bit of Milkweed growing though I have a hard time keeping my husband from weeding it out!  I keep reminding him of the benefits but he grew up on a farm and just sees it as a weed! 

This is Autumn Charm Stonecrop sedum that I really like.  Love that it's bi-colored and it shoots out a realy pretty pink flower.

This is one of my favorites too, it's called Peach Flambe Coral Bells (Heuchera)  

On the end of the island are some Stella D'oro daylilies that are just starting to bloom.  They always put on a good show.

I believe these are a Tiny Bee Asiatic Lily which I love their pretty yellow coloring!

Oh gosh this Magic Show "Wizard of AHHS" Veronica/speedwell is lovely this year!

Still lots more to bloom yet!

This is Orange Marmelade hosta which I've had for quite a few years.  I might split it this year so I can have a bigger display of it!


Down below the Limelight Hydrangea are these Lemon Princess Spirea.  Spireas do real well up north here. 

And finally what should have been the first picture is a quick view of the island out front of our house.
Cherry Parfait roses and my Flamingo!
