June Garden Tour

I am sharing a tour of my Spring flower garden.
We have had a lot of rain here in Gaspé lately,
along with cooler temperatures.

Most photos taken under cloudy conditions.

Our summers are short, with a

hardiness grow zone of 5a

We have to be grateful and appreciate
 the beauty God has given us.

~Chokecherry Tree~

~Bleeding Hearts~
I finally get them to grow for me.

 ~Shieldleaf-A tropical looking plant~
~ Hostas emerging to start another year~

~tulips amongst forget-me-nots~

 Forget~Me~Nots wander throughout the garden
Their flowers lasting about a month in Spring.
They reseed themselves.

Pink, White and Blue Forget-Me-Nots....


~Apple tree blossoms~
~tulips in the rain~

 ~Beachwood-from the beach nearby~
The rose bushes are starting to get their leaves.

Below, beyond the birdbath is my "Jungle". beyond weeding,
I have planted many types of trees here over the years.
Beside the birdbath is a Chestnut tree.

The path in the Jungle
On the right is a Hazelnut Bush.
 Forget-Me-Nots here also.
When they are finished flowering, they go to seed,
 I will cut the grass
 and spread their seeds elsewhere.

 ~Ferns, gracefully unfurling~
More Ferns

~The Front Garden~
the Plum tree is a late bloomer.
In this garden I have a miniature hostas collection
 and hens'n'chickens. (These hostas are later coming out)

~The Strawberry Patch ~ 
It's doing well with all the rain we've had.

~At the back - the trees got their leaves last week~
~A quiet spot~

In the Greenhouse:
 I planted Zinnias in my large terracotta pots
 instead of Nasturtiuns this yr. 
(except the lst. pot in front on the right)

I found, 5 different types of Zinnias.
I'm anxious to see them in flower.

“In the garden 

I tend to drop my thoughts here and there. 

To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep 

and the hopes I breathe.

I know they are there to eavesdrop 

for the angels.”
