June, Mid-Year

So, half of 2021 has passed. These six months were joyful and restless for me, and therefore I was waiting for summer days, warmth, blue sky, bright colors and delicious garden fruits.   

June gave the heat + 34 C in the shade. Now I try to spend time in a shady corner, in a gazebo. It is very hot to sit on the south terrace of the cottage.

In this heat, I water the plants every day after 7 pm. Of course, I save water, because rain is not expected anytime soon. I show you blooming in the garden and wish all gardeners to enjoy summer days so that later they can remember this time on dark winter evenings.

 Azalea 'Northern Light'
 

 Lonicera Caprifolium

 

 Rhododendron evergreen 'Peter Tigershedt'

 

White (above) and pink roses (no name)

These roses have been growing near the fence for a long time and were inherited from previous owners.

 
Canadian pink rose 'Therese Bugnet' 
 
 
 
Red rose Flammentanz just now started opening its flowers

Happy summer!

  1. Hi Nadezda,

    Your garden looks lovely. 34 degrees in the shade is very hot. I'm glad we haven't got it here yet. Your Azalea is so pretty. Therese Bugnet blooms here too.
    Happy Midsummer!

  2. Your garden must smell nice with azaleas, honeysuckle and roses. Especially in the evenings when the temperature drops to a pleasant level. I am glad that our temperature is only in the twenties, but no rain her eighter.
    I have an azalea that looks just like your 'Norhtern light' Mine is called 'Davidii'. Maybe the same in two different countries?
    Enjoy midsummer :-)
    Greetings Lisbeth

    1. Lisbeth, as I learned, this "Norhtern light" variety was grown in a Finnish nursery, this is an azalea hybrid bred by Canadian gardeners. But maybe this is the same species, named differently? And yes, this azalea has a pleasant scent.
      Glad you have more comfortable weather.

  3. I hope that the heat moderates for you somewhat, Nadezda. Once it climbs into the thirties it is hard to take. In the meantimes your garden looks fantastic and with so many roses the fragrance must be equally spectacular. Enjoy it while you may!

    1. David, plants are beautiful because they get enough water every day, despite the heat. My pump works a lot. I love the scent in the garden, you are right.

  5. Hola Nadezda. Que hermosas están tus flores, se ven espectaculares. Yo pienso igual que tu, hay que disfrutar de tanto color ahora que podemos porque pasa muy deprisa y el invierno es gris y duro. Feliz verano querida amiga. Besos y abrazos

  7. Hello Nadezda girl ! You have GORGEOUS flowers here ! .. that azalea is what I would love because it goes with every colour of other plants ! You have wonderful a rhododendron too ! .. I love that you have a Canadian rose .. I think it must be VERY fragrant as well ? .. it is sad when they breed roses without scent, but I guess perfection of form wins out more times than not? I know we will have hot spells here too, I dread them .. I stay in the house as long as possible and do my garden chores as quickly as possible .. this time of year we tend to do that. I hope you have a great summer despite the heat ! take care !

  8. Thank you for all these beautiful photos of your flowers! I imagine that if you water in the evening, when you go out in the early morning on a hot day everything smells wonderful...

  17. Never met azalea having scent! In our area people plant a lot of azaleas just for intense blooming in sprint.
    Thank you for sharing your garden experience!
