Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - June 2008

I am little bit late this month, but I believe that I will be forgiven. I have been on the weekend trip and visited some amazing places hidden in the deep forest in Poland - some pictures will soon follow :)
So, currently flowering in my garden: rose "Parade", climber, growing up to 3 meters.

"Mary Rose" - David Austin rose, 1983.



"Graham Thomas" - David Austin rose, 1983.

Peony of unkknown name...


One of my favourite June flowers is Digitalis......


....... especialyy the white ones....


Spiraea japonica "Manon"

.... flowering Sempervivums.....


... and the little guy in the left down corner posing to the picture....

For those, who are not familiar with the Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, I would like to say, that this is the tradition started by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. On 15th of each month participants, which are gardeners around the world, are posting pictures of flowers blooming in their gardens exactly on that day.....

What a cute little guy! LOL.

I wonder if your peony could be 'Sarah Bernhardt'. It looks very much like it and it's a common variety.

Beautiful foxgloves!

Maybe it is Sarah Bernhardt - I will have a look :) thank you :)

Thanks for sharing so many lovely photos! You are an excellent photographer! The unknown peony is a true beauty... And the roses are smashing!.

Oh, such an elegant garden!
And I envy you peonies - I love them but most often live in climates in which they do not grow. Which poses a problem when I want to use my Finnish glass place setting for twelve ( a wedding gift from the Finnish part of my late spouse's family): 50 plates & 50 bowls in different sizes + about as many glasses, all depicting peony flowers in different stages of bloom - from tiny buds on vodka glasses to fully developed huge blooms on serving plates... Why? Because I either have to spend a small fortune to order from far away live peonies in all of their colors to go with my peony "china"... or substitute other flowers... which defeats the purpose of having a peony "china" i the first place :-(((

Your pinks are just perfect Ewa. I like the sempervivums too.

Your garden is lovely, Ewa. It's been way too long since I visited. Spring has a 'strangling' hold on gardeners but my tour was well worth the wait.

Beautiful flowers, and I don't mind a bit that you were late. It is taking me awhile to get around to everyone's posts to see what's blooming around the world, and say thank you for joining in.

Gorgeous roses, peonies and foxgloves! You captured them so well on film. Poland must be very fertile.
