    June Garden ~ Our Fairfield Home & Garden

     

     

     

     

     

    June is here and now the growing season is moving along nicely. No more fits and starts. The days are warm and plants are fairy bursting from the ground! I start each early morning with coffee on the front porch, surveying the garden, serenaded by birds. Yesterday, I caught sight of a handsome fox racing across the yard and into the treeline. What a treat!

    Deutzia’s soft fragrance wafts over the garden on the spring breeze. Baby wrens are fledging hesitantly at their mother’s urging from a birdhouse onto the nearest tree branch. They teeter-totter to gain their balance, chirping wildly the whole while.  Showers last night intensified every color, illuminating each leaf and flower. Late spring in the garden is a magical time.

    Come along on a quick tour. I’ll share with you some of the beauty I began the day with!

    Barb, I always love touring your gardens. I am still fighting weeds in mine, but working away at it a couple hours a day. Sun/heat is not kind to me,but I love gardening. Your gardens are beautiful.

    • Barb says:

      Hi, Caroline! Have you tried the old layered newspapers and mulch trick to keep down the weeds? I always go outside early in the day because the heat gets to me too!

  4. Denise Leinicke says:

    Beautiful! Still love the bench vignette.

    • Barb says:

      Thanks, Denise! I put the bench in the flower bed when the garden was looking sparse in early spring. Loving it there, it may stay!

      Thanks for your visit, Lorri! I know all the common names of our plantings, but am still working on learning the Latin !
