Well, June is a week from being history.  I have been struggling mightily to blog.  This post has been a challenge.  I did want you to see what is going on in the garden.  Lots of blooming!  And as I look outside, lots of rain!  Cindy has made its way to the 'Burgh.  We really didn't need her!  It has been raining so much that I mowed in the rain earlier this week.

This is one of my favorite times in the garden.  Lots of herbs are starting to bloom as you can see above.  The bee balm will be in its glory for the fourth of July!  Also wanted to show you the extra items The Herbal Husband made with the old grape arbor.  I think they both add character to our already quirky garden.

We are having a surge in wildlife in the garden, including but not limited to, a groundhog (eating on the driveway), skunk (several sightings at night), possum (having dinner out of our recycling can), raccoon and yesterday a doe brought her two fawns with her for a visit plus the three or four feral cats that roam the gardens.  It's a zoo!

Hope you are having a great day without rain!  I have definitely had enough rain, but the weeds are enjoying the extra rain as always!  Will talk to you later.

I loved reading about and seeing photos of what is going on in the 'burgh'. Your Fairy Rose is amazing. I love your 'Apothecary Rose' too. I need to grow borage again, the flowers are pretty and the foliage is nice too.

We had a lot of rain for a couple of weeks, this week has been pretty rain free though, except for light sprinkles. Cindy didn't waste much time getting up your way. Hope your weather dries out soon.

The arbors make great additions to your gardens.

Happy Summer ~ FlowerLady
