June has come. May has been quite cold, although 6 days we were pleased with the warmth up to +28 C. During these few warm days, all the plants started to grow and bloom. But the happiness was short-lived :-( Cool days + 12 C and cold nights + 6 C came. In addition, there were strong winds with rain.
June is pleasantly warm, the sun shines the sky is blue with small clouds. I prefer to sit in a chair on the porch and look at plants. The small decorative crab-apple tree blooms beautiful red flowers. Its apples are tiny and red.
The plum tree did not bloom for long, its white petals flew around from the gusts of the wind. Apparently, I won't have to rely on the plum harvest.
My fir is 8 years old and it constantly wants to bend to one side, does not grow straight up. I fixed it to a stick.
This winter I read that there is such a variety of fir - weeping fir. Maybe I just have this variety?
Rhododendrons bloom late this cool spring but their flowers are always welcome in my garden.
These yellow flowers grow on their own anywhere in the garden. We call them Trollius (Troilius patulus).
I have several raised beds in the garden. This is due to the fact that it is difficult for me to bend down, and these beds prevent pain and keep me healthy.
Tulips still bloom in June, these are late cultivars.
I planted many bulb flowers in the fall, but unfortunately some of them died in the winter. Apparently the soil in the raised beds was frozen. Now there are spireas, lilies and small thujas, bleeding heart, delphinium.
Lily Ismene (Ismene x festalis) has blossomed in the greenhouse, it has opened all 6 flowers.
The Mahonia bush and spirea Grefsheim (Spiraea cinerea Grefsheim) winter well in the garden, so cool May does not prevent them from blooming. The bright yellow Mahonia flowers will turn into blue berries by fall. Long branches of Grefsheim with snow-white flowers adorn the garden in June.
Cool May ended. What will June be like? Who knows ... but I want him to please with warmth and sun. What about your plants in June?
